Following a consultation on the scope and vision for St Cuthbert’s Garden Village this spring, Carlisle City Council has announced the next stage of consultation on draft concept proposals and a vision compiled by a team of consultants led by Gillespies and including Hemingway Design, Lambert Smith Hampton and WYG.
The document sets out how the St Cuthbert’s Garden Village area, situated to the south of Carlisle, could be made up. Following feedback from the spring consultation, several settlements are shown rather than one single settlement. It also incorporates the route of the proposed Southern Link Road.
Alternatively view printed copies of the proposals at the Customer Contact Centre in Carlisle Civic Centre or at Carlisle library.
A summary of feedback from the spring consultation has now been published and is available at www.stcuthbertsgv.co.uk
The adopted Carlisle District Local Plan 2015 – 2030 identifies a broad location for growth of a major mixed-use development, providing up to 10,000 new homes, to the south of the city. Originally known as Carlisle South, this planned new development was included in the Government’s locally-led garden villages, towns and cities programme in January 2017, and is now being progressed as St Cuthbert’s Garden Village. The preparation of a separate Local Plan to guide the development of the area is underway.
