As the only city in Cumbria, Carlisle plays an important role in the broader economic functional area which includes southern Scotland and as such it plays a key role in retail, administrative and service sectors. Carlisle also has ambition. It is a City where Businesses, Education and the Public Sector have a shared vision for the future.
We all want to make Carlisle successful, by raising our profile, by telling our story.In order to grow Carlisle, we need to bring in new jobs, keep the ones we have, attract visitors, encourage people to live here and get investors and developers to see that this is a place worth investing in. Partnerships and collaborative working is how we deliver and is already having a significant positive impact. This is a unique opportunity for you to join us on this journey and have a central role in shaping our future. Come to Carlisle and help us achieve this vision.
The challenge for us all is to get Carlisle firmly placed on the map – ensuring that investors, customers and suppliers know Carlisle via three key story themes. Businesses from sole traders to multinationals are key stakeholders in our economy and can all benefit by being involved in the development and implementation of this shared vision. Carlisle is everyone’s business.
