Like many other organisations we had hoped for a ‘normal’ AGM this year but in view of the ongoing Covid situation and risks with public gatherings we have decided to conduct our 2021 AGM virtually, as last year, by Zoom. The circumstances throughout the year have meant that normal activities have again been limited and the meeting agenda will be limited to minimal AGM business.

As last year, the existing Trustees have willingly agreed to co continue in post, thus maintaining a continuity through the difficult times, and there will be no elections at the AGM. The draft accounts will shortly be published on the Village website and will be made available by email if requested. As always residents of the Parish are welcome at our AGM and if you would like an invitation to join the Zoom meeting will you please write to landowners@crosthwaiteandlyth.co.uk and joining instructions will be forwarded.

The online meeting is scheduled for Tuesday 22nd February at 7.00pm.

Martin Casson.
Chair of the Trustees.

Housing Needs Assessment – 2021 Update

The results of the assessment are now published in the form of a Summary, a Primary Data Report and a Secondary Data Report.

The Housing Needs survey outcome forms a major part of evidence-gathering for a Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) for Crosthwaite & Lyth Parish. The results will be fed into a larger document looking at a range of aspects of the Parish: housing; natural environment; community facilities, sustainability and local businesses. The document then goes through further refinement cycles through community consultation, and discussion with the Lake District National Park. Finally, there is a community referendum on the refined version.

pin B4RN

Crosthwaite and Lyth have officially started laying fibre piping. This has been an unprecedented schedule for B4RN, as no other project has gone from conception to turf cut in such a short time. We ask all those in the valley, who have yet to sign up to B4RN to do so please. As for those that have, the many landowners who signed the free wayleaves and the core volunteers we extended a massive THANK YOU. Soon we will have hyperfast reasonably priced internet ensuring that this valley is ready for the future.
