Seems the long hoped for Southern Bypass - From the A595 to Jctn 42 - may become a reality after the St Cuthberts area has been selected for a new 'Garden Village'. Swathes of Homes and facilities will be built.

In what timescale though?

The "morton masterplan" for 1,500 homes is about 20 years old and so far a couple of persimmon/charles church housing estates have been built. The vast bulk of it hasn't happened.

On that rate of progress, St Cuthberts should be finished sometime early in the 22nd century. I'll let my great-great-grandkids know.

The Council will be on to it as soon as they have reached a decision on the proposed new zebra crossing in front of the castle, projected timescale - 12th of never.

How is it possible to plan for the future - the BBC reliably informed me that the world would come to and end if we left Europe and if Trump got elected.

Is there no Posh Folk in Cumbria like ?

Doesn't a certain % of all housing built now have to be in the 'affordable housing' category ?

Wonder if there'll be a new supermarket by Jctn 42 (43 & 44 have them) that could enable a new Ground into a development... :whistle:

Where on earth are these people supposed to appear from though, if you want to live in Carlisle already then you can with ease - maybe they are expecting a baby boom or something :)

Remember back in the day when the problem families from London were sent to Dover, Maidstone and the likes.

The gangster families chased out of Manchester and Liverpool will now be sent to Durdar - I should have posted this on the drugs thread as Durdar with its excellent access to the M6 could become the drugs capital of the UK.

Sounds like a Blueyonder sort of pipe dream by the council to be honest, in ten years time they will have scrapped four ideas and still be claiming it is still a viability whilst they keep taking the funding.

And Fred isn't daft if he is offered any plots, he wont build houses that people wont buy.

Edinburgh Woolly Mill is already looking at moving it's HQ from Langholm to Carlisle, partly for better transport links, partly to escape sturgeon's tax raiding on companies and people alike. A few more of these and a few booze warehouses as the tartan taliban start taxing alcohol to the hilt as well and it'll be St Corby-Cuthberts before you can blink.

Reading into, the various developments are between 1500 and 10000 Homes. Would imagine St Cuthberts will be the lower end of the scale?

Minimum 1500 Homes still a fair new build mind!

The A595 upgrade is far more important than this vanity project.. they [censored] up with the by pass by not duelling it anyway.

Time for other parts of cumbria to receive funding for upgrades
