Consultation on the emerging St Cuthbert's Garden Village began on 26 January 2018 and will run until 9 March 2018. A new website has been created to keep you up to date with the latest developments. Please visit www.stcuthbertsgv.co.uk for further information.
Following the recent submission of an Expression of Interest (EoI) in response to the Government's call for Locally Led Garden Villages, Towns and Cities, the City Council has been successful in being awarded Garden Village status for St Cuthbert’s (Carlisle South). The intention of the Government's programme is to provide tailored support to local authorities who want to create new communities based on garden city principles. This objective aligns perfectly with the ambitions for Carlisle South, which is a broad location earmarked for future strategic growth through Policy SP 3 of the adopted Carlisle District Local Plan (2015-2030). The EoI details how the opportunity aligns with Garden City principles and also showcases the potential of Carlisle South. Updates on the inclusion of Carlisle South within the programme will be posted on the Latest News section of this website.
On 8th May 2017 the City Council's Executive approved a number of important matters including the programming of work and budget provisions in relation to St Cuthbert's Garden Village. These are set out in committee report ED17/17 below.
Work is ongoing gathering evidence to inform the masterplanning process for St Cuthbert’s Garden Village. A ‘Landscape and Townscape Appraisal’ was completed by the Edinburgh office of LUC in May 2017. A second study assessing the current economic position of Carlisle District, and looking at potential future growth sectors has also been completed. This study was undertaken by ‘regeneris’. Both documents are available for download below.
The City Council will ensure that there are plenty of opportunities for the public and landowners to get involved and help shape the future of the area. See the latest news section for information as it becomes available.
