Keith Little, Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport, said:

“These events are an opportunity for local businesses to come along and find out more about the process of contracting with the county council. We have contracts with numerous local providers and we’re always keen to hear from more, so I’d encourage local transports businesses to come along.”

Those wishing to attend should contact commissioning@cumbria.gov.uk with their name, company, contact details, confirmation of which event they wish to attend and any special requirements.
