Cumbria council proposing to build new headquarters in Carlisle

Cumbria County Council is pushing ahead with plans for a purpose-built HQ in Carlisle’s Botchergate.
Have your say
Mr Shifty,For clarity, the land you refer to is not the property of any Council
It seems on the surface a good idea but why use this particular site?
If the Tesco plan doesn't go ahead on the Viaduct New Road on what is County Council land why not build it there. It's a brown field site, handy for the City Centre and can include parking too.
Just a minute Councillors Young/Hendry...... BEFORE even thinking about new buildings, isn't it time to tackle the merger of county/districts in Cumbria to rid us of the costly outdated two tier system. Surely you have to sort out the organisational structures BEFORE embarking on any fancy building schemes. And let's recycle the Civic Centre as the first option. It will never be a hotel. Perhaps if council staff started to pay for car parking at the Sands there would be a bit of money for a green makeover for the Civic Centre - just an idea!
