The Citadels Public Consultation

Closes 4 Jun 2020

Opened 14 May 2020


Find out more about the ambitious plans to improve the Historic Citadels and surrounding areas.

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.
