Allerdale is a great place to start a business.
Some 71% of new businesses in Allerdale are still trading three years after launch, well above the national average of 61%.
The high survival rate is in part explained by the pro-business stance of Allerdale Borough Council, which actively funds business support initiatives.
In this podcast, Council Leader Alan Smith talks about plans for new starter workshops, the regeneration of Maryport, selling Allerdale to a wider audience, flood protection, reviving town centres and bringing the Rugby League World Cup to Workington in 2021.
