Invest in Cumberland
There’s little which isn’t made in the central area of Cumberland once known as Allerdale - from international rally cars to the new £5 note, and crisp packets to World Cup football pitches.
We’re a hub of international expertise – energy, innovation, technology, engineering and science. We have locations with great transport links that are ripe for development - big brownfield sites, urban and rural business parks, and excellent conference facilities such as the Energus Events and Conference venue.
And we’re the perfect home for your workforce, with good schools, plenty of housing and the Lake District National Park, the Solway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Hadrian's Wall World Heritage Site on your doorstep.
How we can help you
We believe in business and want to help you make your dreams into reality, expand your company, or invest here.
