The Citadels Consultation: Have your say before Thursday 4 June 2020

Carlisle Citadel Carlisle Citadel

Local residents, businesses, students and visitors are being given the opportunity to have their say on ambitious proposals for a new campus for the University of Cumbria at Carlisle's Historic Citadels and its surrounding area. 

The Citadels are a major gateway into the city and are a key part of the history and identity of Carlisle.

As part of the Borderlands Inclusive Growth Deal, £50 million of funding has been allocated for the second phase of work to bring new purpose to The Citadels.  

Plans are in place to transform the Citadels Buildings and the adjacent site to become a new home for the University of Cumbria.

This site can, potentially, be transformative to the character and status of Carlisle and the wider Borderlands area.

We would like to know what you think about the Citadels and area around them and the potential for their future use.

The project is being developed jointly by Cumbria County Council, Carlisle City Council and the University of Cumbria working with Cumbria LEP as a key partner.
