St Cuthbert's Garden Village Carlisle
St Cuthbert’s Garden Village, Carlisle is an ambitious proposal that could include the development of around 10,000 new quality homes, new employment opportunities, community facilities and a new Southern Link Road.
Of all the sites included in the Government’s Garden Village programme, St Cuthbert’s is by far the largest in terms of its potential capacity. It is amongst the most ambitious development projects being actively progressed within the north of England, and is one of the leading projects for meeting the growth ambitions of the Cumbria Local Enterprise Partnership and the wider Borderlands Inclusive Growth Deal.
