Welcome to our virtual exhibition

Strawsons Property is bringing forward plans to develop under-used land off Junction 44 into a leading, sustainable  logistics hub occupied by some of the most well-known brands in the UK.

The plans for Harker View will create around 2,600 jobs, generate £146 million annual investment into the local economy deliver publicly accessible green space, and much-needed green infrastructure.

The proposal will incorporate a state-of-the-art electric vehicle charging forecourt and a traditional petrol forecourt, as well as supporting service facilities such as a 75-bed hotel, a public house, restaurant and drive-thru eateries. The site would also benefit from a range of publicly accessible green space, green infrastructure and a potential park-and-ride site.

Harker View presents a unique opportunity for Carlisle to be at the forefront of electric vehicle charging technology and is deliverable at a time when the worldwide demand for more sophisticated logistic solutions has been emphasized by the Coronavirus pandemic.

Strawsons Property will submit its planning application to Carlisle City Council in January 2021. We look forward to hearing your thoughts and feedback on our proposals.
