Copeland is the name of a borough and local government district within the western part of the ceremonial County of Cumbria, in the far north of England. The district was created on the 1st April 1974 by the merger of the borough of Whitehaven, Ennerdale Rural District and Millom Rural District, which was one of a huge number of local government re-organisation initiatives that occurred nationwide, following the Local Government Act of 1972.
The name given to the new district is thought to have been chosen as a nod to the historic name of Kaupland, which translates as ‘bought land’ and was an Irish-Norse name given to the area of forest in the region that had been purchased from the St Bees Priory. Whatever the origins of the region’s name, it is interesting to analyse the area in the present day in order to understand how the issues surrounding compensation claims affect residents of Copeland.
