Who We Are


Dalton is the ancient and historic capital of Furness and has approximately 8,000 residents at the current time. Ideally located less than thirty miles from the Lake District and close to the Irish Sea coast and nature reserves, Dalton is home to one of the Counties largest tourist attractions, South Lakes Wild Animal Park.

Dalton with Newton Town Council was established in 1987 to serve the population of Dalton and Newton and has 10 elected members. The Council are not currently service providers but aim to enhance the area in which we live for the benefit of both residents and visitors to the Town.
