The pensions committee which manages the pension funds for all the councils and various other public services in Cumbria meetings tomorrow (21st September 2021) at 9.30 am in Cumbria House, Botchergate, Carlisle. Some but not all of the meeting will be open to the public.
As you would expect of a body which looks after £3 billion of public money and the retirement savings of thousands of public servants, the reports to the committee are quite detailed and thorough - the full agenda is two inches thick and runs to 775 pages.
Those papers which are available to the public can be found on the council website at
The main reason some parts of the committee's work is not public is that when you are buying or selling assets it is not in your interests to give away advance notice of your negotiating position by determining it in public. That would not be in the interests of Cumbria's taxpayers or public employees.
