Infrastructure Planning - Strategic Plans

Cumbria County Council recognises the importance of delivering economic growth. In keeping with this we work closely with Cumbria LEP in the development of strategy and policy documents including the LEP's Strategic Economic Plan, Cumbria Infrastructure Plan and Cumbria's Strategic Investment Plan.

These documents set out the priorities for investment and resources to maximise economic growth in Cumbria.  Cumbria LEP Website.

The County Council also works closely with funding partners in the development of their strategic objectives and vision, proactively promoting the strategic priorities for Cumbria and making the case for future investment in Cumbria. This includes working alongside Transport for the North, Highways England, Network Rail and Rail North.
