What do we stand for
Helping Cumbria build back better from Covid in a way that’s ground-breaking, innovative and above all, beneficial to both investors and our communities.
We know Cumbria has a lot going for it:
our lead in Clean Energy and Engineering,
our World Heritage Status as a tourist destination,
fantastic farming and produce,
hard-working communities and a culture of resilience.
Cumbria is a great place to invest, live and work.
Given the challenging economic outlook, the next round of investments will be hard fought – particularly those involving public money – and winning will require a distinct competitive edge, both for the host community and for the investor.
We believe creating a winning edge will only come from aligning commercial and community interests: shaping and implementing major investments in a way that builds confidence, entrepreneurship, self-reliance and sustainable social value for all our people now, and for future generations; tackling and reducing inequality in our communities.
Put simply, we want to attract the best commercial
developments to Cumbria.
Developments that deliver:
extraordinary returns for the investor
incredible social and economic value for all our communities across the county.
