With friendly communities, low crime rate, cultural attractions and excellent motorway and West Coast Mainline links to the North West, South Lakeland rightly promotes itself as the ‘best place to live, work and explore.’
The Shared ICT Service was created in 2012 between South Lakeland District Council and Eden District Council.
