Carlisle landscape competition launched for St Cuthbert's Garden Village

Future Cities Forum has been following the developments of garden villages through our interviews and events featuring the work of Sir Ebenezer Howard OBE, an English urban planner and founder of the garden city movement.

Now Carlisle City Council in partnership with the Landscape Institute has launched a competition to select an individual or team to design a new Greenway and Park to form the centrepiece of St Cuthbert's Garden Village communities in the south of Carlisle.

The Landscape Institute states that St Cuthbert's Garden Village is one of the largest projects of its kind nationally and the largest in the north of England and that 'the scale and location of it provides a genuine opportunity to make a difference in a well planning and coherent way'.
