Parish Plans.

There's a plan to try to get the current footpath from Southfield Lane, Silecroft upgraded to a bridleway and cycle path. Eventually this path would go to Millom, without having to deal with the treacherous road. It also needs to have facilities for the disabled. First step, however, is to try to get to Kirksanton!

Whicham Parish Council

Parish councils have their origins in medieval times, in an era when money was seldom used and when few people lived in the countryside. Communities came together in order to organise land management, agriculture and settle disputes.
The current system of parish councils was formed in 1896. There are currently around 10,000 parish councils in the country.
Local councils have evolved considerably over the last 1000 or so years, but one thing remains the same: they are the tier of local government which is closest to individual communities and therefore have the greatest potential for identifying, understanding and addressing the needs of the communities they serve

Parish Council meetings are usually held on the 1st Wednesday of the month at 7.30pm in one of the two village halls. Anyone wishing to raise a particular issue, or who is interested in Parish business, is welcome to attend. Agenda
