This is an exciting time for Carlisle, with significant investment opportunities for the city coming forward. Carlisle is one of the key partners in the Borderlands Inclusive Growth Deal, a £394.5 million growth deal signed by both UK and Scottish governments, with Cumbria County Council, Dumfries and Galloway Council, Northumberland County Council and Scottish Borders Council. This aims to transform the region, and support Carlisle as the capital of the Borderlands.
Carlisle also has opportunities to transform the city through the Towns Fund and Future High Street Fund, with the potential to lever up to £50 million of investment to invest in regenerating the city.
This website provides information and updates on our regeneration initiatives and projects to help transform our city.
In Autumn 2019 Carlisle was announced as one of the 101 places selected to create a Town Deal for up to £25 million worth of investment to support regeneration, skills development and improving digital and physical connectivity.
Agreeing a Town Investment Plan is the first stage of agreeing a Town Deal. This Investment Plan will set a vision for Carlisle's future growth, capturing all the investments and opportunities for Carlisle taking place.
Drawing on feedback provided from key stakeholders and previous public consultations for other projects, we have proposed a vision and objectives for Carlisle's Investment Plan, which will set the strategy for our Town Deal and steer how the Town Deal Fund investments are used. These can be seen in our consultation document.
Our initial consultation has now ended, however you can still download and read our vision and objectives document from this page, and leave your thoughts on our online survey. If you have any further comments or questions you can get in contact with us at [email protected].
