Post offices, Flood prevention, Nuclear plans

This afternoon was the April meeting of Copeland Council.

Issues discussed included

* the Shoreline management plan and flood prevention (see previous post)
* proposed Post office closures
* Radioactive Waste Management
* A Copeland "Business Summit"
* Consultation on a possible Town Council for Whitehaven
* Next year's Mayor and Deputy Mayor of Copeland

On Post Offices closures, it was agreed that a special two-day meeting of the Economic Development O&S Committee will be held on 16th and 17th May. After interviewing interested parties, including the Post Office Ltd, sub-postmasters, and community groups such as Age Concern and the Disability Forum, that committee will make a response to the Post Office on behalf of the council.
