South Lakeland is a local government district within the ceremonial county of Cumbria, in the far north of England. The district includes much of the area known as the Lake District and has the administrative centre of its local council in the famous Lake District town of Kendal.
The formation of South Lakeland
The current incarnation of the local government district of South Lakeland has only been in existence for 40 years having been officially formed on the 1st April 1974. This formation came about due to the passage of the Local Government Act of 1972 which reorganised local government all over the United Kingdom. In the case of South Lakeland it created the new district out of a merger of the Kendal borough, Windermere urban district, most of the Lakes urban district, the South Westmorland Rural District, the Grange and Ulverston urban districts, the North Lonsdale Rural District from Lancashire and the Sedbergh Rural District from the West Riding of Yorkshire.
The modern district of South Lakeland
The current form of the district of South Lakeland covers around 592 square miles, making it the 10th largest district by land area in the whole country. It also supports a permanent resident population of over 100,000 but due to the large land area does not have a high population density. This would normally suggest that accidents and injuries would be less common in the district, but the extra influx of visitors through tourism to the Lake District means that this is not actually the case in South Lakeland. It is for that reason, therefore, that it may be worth your while reading on and finding out a little about personal injury compensation claims in South Lakeland.
