Thing is the stations getting rejigged too, so the entrance will be on the other side. Most passengers won't see the rejuvenated citadel area but the back arse of metal box and a car park where the baths used to be


Foot Passengers will still be using the current entrance though…

Best thing about the project for me is the comments on the news and star post.

Decision on Fri for this project (See link).

Also found this Vid on YouTube of the Project:



The animation which shows a cloudless blue sky and pure white buildings makes Carlisle look like Athens or somewhere on Lanzarote..

It should be pedestrianised, and Devonshire St made two way.

This project could breath life into the city centre. Students spend money in shops, bars etc . Students finishing lectures will not have a short walk to the shops and bars.

They should reinstate the arch between the Citadels.

Turn left into that from the station, a great first impression of Carlisle, turn right onto Botchergate, and you'd get back on the train. :D

It does look amazing. I just wonder how the plans fit in with Liz Truss's intentions of squeezing funding for universities. Mind you most of her plans are totally unworkable.

I always smile when I'm on the 15 bus in East London and they call out the next stop as University of Cumbria. It feels strange but I'm told they do excellent work training teachers to work in East End schools.

But the problem is the name, University of Cumbria. Soon Cumbria will cease to exist. This may also be a problem for Radio Cumbria.


Cumbria will still exist as a ceremonial county it'll just be divided into 2 unitary authorities. From the article link below “The Order ensures there is no change to the ceremonial county of Cumbria; the roles and responsibilities of the Lord Lieutenant and High Sheriff of the county of Cumbria are unaltered."

I worked with an Architect, well over 20 years ago, when he tasked with locating the new University of Cumbria in the Courts Buildings. The Tutors Offices and meeting rooms were to be housed in Portland Square. In a few years we'll now get there, things take time up North.

I do like the artistic impression of the new buildings and particularly its location in the heart of the city. But the problem is the name, University of Cumbria. Soon Cumbria will cease to exist. This may also be a problem for Radio Cumbria.

I'm sure it will be designed to be carbon neutral, and at least one of the roofscapes appear to be green on those images.
Bring it on.

It will interesting to see what kind of 21st Century insulation/heating/cooling/lighting/renewables are being used in the build.

London is into green spaces, even on the roofs, don't see much of that.

Will it be carbon neutral ?

In fairness, the original Blue Yonder pics/plans were of an exploratory nature, drawn up by a firm with a lot of experience in Stadiums (Frank Whittle Partnership).

They only spent approx £10k was it? Any more and you’d have cried they were wasting too much money!

Makes me laugh mind at the horsemen and their total shan blue blunder project..All the local projects come with some good artists impressions to back up plans...They rolled out a black and white 1 dimensional view from above with shapes on and a bit of writing a child could have knocked up.

The last Pic looks like its drawn from where the ramp down to the Station is?

That’s going to be some flash building folk see coming to/from Scotland on a Train!
