Cumbria is a unique place with strong communities who have come together to respond to the Covid-19 pandemic and Cumbria deserves a recovery that is ambitious and minimises inequalities in the county

Our Recovery will be demanding but leaders and decision makers are absolutely committed to the recovery aims which are: to build a better Cumbria where people are healthy and safe and people want to visit, communities are inclusive, connected and thriving and our economy is growing, sustainable and benefits everyone.
