Reminder: Public meeting about Whitehaven issues at 6pm this evening

The Mayor of Copeland, Mike Starkie, has also set up a meeting at 6pm this evening (May 18th 2016) to discuss a number of local issues including the parking problems in Whitehaven. The meeting will be held in Mirehouse Labour Club, and representatives of Sellafield Ltd, Cumbria County Council and Whitehaven Town Council have been invited to attend to answer residents' questions.

A number of issues are up for discussion at the meeting, but Mr Starkie said parking is likely to be high on people's agenda.

He said: "I am fully aware of the high level of public discord on this issue and will invite along to the meeting a number of key stakeholders who are working with Copeland Council to address this."

Also on Mr Starkie's agenda will be other Whitehaven-related matters, including the Moorside nuclear power station development - and its associated accommodation and transport links - and West Cumberland Hospital.
