Click here for information on elections - including the Millom Town Council and Copeland Borough Council by-elections on November 2.
We are still recovering from a major cyber attack - some of our systems are working again, some are not yet back to full strength. We have prioritised frontline services. Our phone lines are still under pressure so it may be easier to contact us at email@example.com. We ask you to be cautious when opening emails appearing to relate to invoices from council officers. These are cyber attack generated and often include the subject line of ‘new invoice, invoice number or payment reminder’ followed by a series of numbers and symbols. These are not legitimate council emails and if in doubt, do not open it.
There has been a delay in the processing of personal searches and official searches due to the attack. We now have an interim procedure which has allowed us to begin processing searches. However this is labour intensive and until we fully regain access to our systems, searches will continue to be delayed.
Payments can be made via our website - this process is as secure as it has always been.
Agendas for upcoming meetings can be viewed here until our normal system returns.
While our phone lines remain affected our out-of-hours emergency number for issues relating to dangerous structures, homelessness, flooding response and sandbag requests is 0151 295 6524.
