Local links are a single place where local people can go to find out information about council services and get help and advice from trained customer service advisors.
A new one-stop-shop for Cleator Moor has brought together the local library and many public services into one convenient place. The town library has been transformed to allow advisors to point people in the right direction on what services they receive from the council on a local and county-wide level. Local links have already been successfully opened elsewhere in the county in Ambleside, Aspatria, Alston, Grange-Over-Sands, Longtown, Milnthorpe and Wigton. This will be the first stage of the project, the long-term plan is for all the council owned buildings at Cleator Moor Square to be used as Local links facilities.
The scheme has already seen staff from Copeland Borough Council move into Cleator Moor Library which will be open from 9am to 5pm Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, and from 9am to 12pm on Wednesday and Saturday.
