Frequently Asked Questions

If you cannot find the information you want in our service pages, you may be able to find it on this main FAQ page.
After looking at the statistics of how users browse our site we have now focused on the most used services as priority, many hundreds of information pages on our site that were accessed rarely or sometimes not at all have now been removed to de-clutter and make our site easier to use.

However we still accept that some information is desirable to help our users better understand aspects of how Carlisle City Council services work, so we provide FAQ lists on most our section landing pages.
All FAQs including any FAQ that does not fit in any of our our site sections are accessible here in the master FAQ page.

Anybody found guilty of failing to complete return forms and send them to the Council within three months of the date of a lottery, or falsifying a return form, may be subject to a fine not exceeding £5,000 if convicted on a summary offence or to a term of imprisonment not exceeding two years or a fine or both if convicted on indictment.
