Change of Name – Proposal

Oct 17, 2019


For many years there has been confusion regarding the name of our Parish being Lower Allithwaite, this has been mainly due to the similarity in name as Upper Allithwaite (Upper Allithwaite changed its name to Lindale and Newton-in-Cartmel in 2018), it seems appropriate to consider a name change that represented the geographical location and identity of the parish more clearly. Lower Allithwaite Parish Council are now proposing to change the name of the parish to ‘Allithwaite and Cartmel Parish Council’.

SLDC stated that it would be best practice to ensure some consultation happens which can be as simple as advertising the fact that a change is being proposed and making it clear to residents how they should respond if they have any strong thoughts about it.

If you have any comments to make on the proposal to change the name of the Parish, then please e-mail: The consultation will close on the 31st December 2019.
