Cumberland Council has thanked the public for their feedback on the regeneration of Market Square and Greenmarket in Carlisle.

The feedback will guide the transformation of the 6,000-square-metre area into a unique, multifunctional event space.

It is hoped to create a lively space that caters to residents, businesses and visitors alike.

Popular phrases that reflect Carlisle's identity were submitted in the survey.

These include "Be just fear not", "The Great Border City" and "Border Reivers.".

The council is considering including one of these phrases in the design to reflect the city's identity.

Another decision following feedback has been the relocation of the War Memorial.

Cumberland Council has consulted with the Royal British Legion to ensure the plans respect its significance.

Its new location in Market Square will provide more space for gatherings and parades.

After some feedback, this will also see the plinth being improved, incorporating the two Victoria Crosses.

This relocation is set to happen this summer, with completion due by Remembrance Day later this year.

Additionally, the council addressed concerns about insufficient green spaces and the absence of a bandstand.

The council confirmed the inclusion of a stage for live performances, and that the area would include trees and planting areas.

The greenery is set to enhance the environment as well as improve drainage.

Some expressed concerns that the design was too modern.

The council is partnering with a landscape architect to find a balance between celebrating Carlisle's heritage and incorporating contemporary design elements.

The most popular choice for representing the city via emblem was the Carlisle city logo.

The council will explore ways of integrating this into the design.

Cumberland Council expressed thanks to all who contributed with feedback.
