Cockermouth Town Council entered into a partnership agreement with Cumbria County Council and Allerdale Borough Council on 1  April 2017 basing multiple services i.e. library, tourist information centre and Allerdale Area Office within the library building on Main Street in Cockermouth.

Working in partnership and basing multiple services in a single location within communities delivers high quality services more efficiently and more importantly gives customers, residents and visitors a true ‘one stop shop’ for access to information and services provided by three tiers of Local Government.
