Carlisle and Cumbria provide the ideal location for business with a diverse population structure, and an accessible and cost effective job market. In addition nationally Carlisle is classed as being in the top 20% in terms of housing affordability. This means that the average house prices against the average wages place Carlisle in the top 20% of affordable districts in the country.

Availability of Public Funds
The Cumbria Infrastructure Fund (CIF) is a facility operated by Cumbria County Council and the Cumbrian LEP and provides funding up to £2million for infrastructure related projects including development of warehousing space.

The Carlisle Chamber of Commerce has recently secured a £5million grant which may be made available to assist developing companies in the area. They are able to assist in the procurement and training of staff to suit incoming companies specific requirements.

Utility Infrastructure
Kingmoor Park benefits from both private and adopted supplies of Water / Gas / Electric and Drainage. As far as we are aware there are no limitations to the supply of all these services.

Broadband
Kingmoor Park offers its tenants the highest possible data communications capacity and security. This is provided by means of direct fibre-optic connections (with microwave wireless back-up) to a dedicated on-site data-centre where there are gigabit interconnects via entirely separate cable-routes with Level 3 (Global Crossing), ManAp, BT and Cable & Wireless.

Renewable Energy
We are in discussion with providers to develop a renewable power station on-site, using a combination of anaerobic digestion / solid recoverable fuel / and biomass. This “renewable super site” will be located on a 12 acre plot within the estate.

Discussions are in place with 2 providers currently. Subject to confirmation the facility could provide “over the fence power” to occupants providing savings of circa 20% on the annual fuel bill of companies connected to it. There is the opportunity to utilise the surplus heat created for both heating and cooling processes.

Planning
Kingmoor Park has outline planning consent for B1, B2 & B8 uses for 2,000,000 sqft and adequate land to develop a “super-shed” of circa 1 million square feet (100,000 square metre approximately).
