Strategic Alcohol Framework for Cumbria

Agree the Draft Strategic Framework as the basis for developing further targeted action plans to tackle alcohol related harm in communities throughout Cumbria.  Agreement of this strategy does not require direct investment from Cumbria County Council and whilst there is no legal requirement to publish an alcohol strategy, the range of services provided by the council, the role in community leadership together with the new Public Health responsibilities make the County Council well placed to lead this work
