Welcome to Kirkby Lonsdale Town Council website. 

If you have any queries about the web site or the Town Council please contact the Clerk.


Members of the public are welcome to attend the meetings and have an opportunity at each meeting to address the Council about any subject.

The Town Council, which is the most local level of government, works closely with the District and County Councils.

Most of the Towns Council’s expenditure goes on staff costs, maintaining its assets and keeping the Town clean and in good order. The Town Councillors are all unpaid and that Staff costs are for outside contractors for ground and building maintinence

Much time is spent in exercising whatever pressure it can on higher authorities for planning, highways and traffic control – to deal with issues affecting the quality of life of residents and keeping the town clean, safe, and in good order.




The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations - street parties.



The Town Council has received the following information from Cumbria County Council.
Street parties for the Platinum Jubilee are to be applied for via South Lakeland District Council who will use powers under the Towns Police Clauses Act to permit community led smaller scale street parties.
Larger scale street parties will need to be considered by the Highways department due to the impact they may have on the network. In these cases we will assess the proposals and advise, where appropriate, on the necessary traffic management arrangements for the street party to take place in a safe manner.  
Larger scale street parties may require a more detailed temporary traffic regulation order (TTRO) than the Towns Police Clauses Act can permit and in these circumstances costs to facilitate the TTRO and/or traffic management will rest with the event organisers.  We are requesting that event organisers who are proposing a larger scale street party send the details of the proposals within the next 2 weeks for consideration to trafficteam.south@cumbria.gov.uk That deadline is Monday, March 7.
