Up for Growth Carlisle is a city where business, education and the public sector share an ambitious view of the future. The city and those active within it are signed up to the benefits of growth, providing the certainty needed for investment decisions and developers alike. Spearheaded by the Carlisle District Local Plan (2015-2030), which sets out a coherent, clear and shared vision, the city is embarking upon the most ambitious levels of growth ever. Unsurprisingly Carlisle features prominently in the Cumbria Local Enterprise Partnership’s forward looking Local Industrial Strategy.


This ambition and potential is recognised by government. Carlisle is a lead partner and at the epicentre of the unique Borderlands Inclusive Growth Deal partnership, with the Heads of Terms for a £395m package of investment signed in the summer of 2019. Carlisle Kingmoor Park Enterprise Zone is one of the largest in the north west and features in the latest Northern Powerhouse Investment prospectus. The new planned neighbourhoods that will form St Cuthbert’s Garden Communities will deliver 10,000 new homes to the south of the city.


Opportunities Already established and excellent industrial estates including Durranhill, Kingstown, Kingmoor and Rosehill offer ready-made landing space. Complementing this pipeline are sites which afford the opportunity to create new destinations including at Morton to the west of the city.


The city has responded to strong latent demand for new housing, making available land to accommodate 565 new homes per annum over the next fifteen years. An attractive and varied pipeline of consented

developments has succeeded in attracting a growing number of new developers to the region. Cementing this position is the St Cuthbert’s Garden Communities, with the planned delivery of new homes on a scale unprecedented in the wider region.


Further commercial opportunities are available including fantastic retail and leisure opportunities as part of mixed-use city centre proposals.


Open for Business Carlisle is very much open for business and development friendly. Aside from competitive leases and available land, there is strong local leadership, a can-do attitude and a great coming together of the private and public sector with a genuine shared ambition to make Carlisle the best it can possibly be. Talk to us or come and see how you can be part of Carlisle’s future.
