Colton Parish Council
Website last updated 30/10/14
Our website is currently being re-constructed. Key information, including agendas and minutes of meetings, planning and Councillor details are provided via the links below. We aim to get the full site up and running in the next couple of months.
Colton Parish lies between Windermere and Coniston Water in the southern part of the Lake District, occupying an area of about 20 sq miles. There is no main settlement in the Parish - it is a collection of small villages, hamlets and farms across 3 valleys: Coniston Water and the Crake Valley in the west, the Rusland Valley in the middle and Windermere and the Leven Valley to the east.

See also the Rusland Valley Community Website for local information.

SUPERFAST BROADBAND: REGISTER YOUR BUSINESS!
The 'Connecting Cumbria' project is rolling out across Cumbria. Colton Parish is expected to get 70% of properties connected to Superfast Broadband (24+Mbps). We may get more properties connected if they are registered business addresses. To help with this, the Parish Council is developing a business register (see link below). This alphabetical list of business names started life from publicly available information on the internet and shows businesses that are said to be based in Colton Parish. If you would like to add details of your business (e.g. by giving contact information, type of services etc) so that they can be seen by local residents, then please send these details to the Clerk at email@example.com. If you would like the name of your business removed from the list, please contact the Clerk.
