Join the Carlisle Youth Council to Judge Landscape Project

Carlisle City Council in partnership with the Landscape Institute has launched a two-stage design competition to select an outstanding designer or team of designers to prepare design proposals for a new multi-modal Greenway and Park which will form the centrepiece of some new Garden Village communities to be located to the south of Carlisle.

This is a project rich with opportunity, focused on selecting a design that demonstrates an outstanding and innovative piece of green infrastructure and that delivers a range of themes within an integrated landscape design.

The competition has two stages – the first stage of judging has taken place and three entries have been shortlisted for Stage 2.

We would like to invite you to join the judging panel for Stage 2 of the Competition to choose a winning design from the three shortlisted.

You will need to be available for the below key dates, to judge for the competition and should note these in your diary.

    During this period, judges will be asked to read the entries and score the entries against specific criteria. Judges will be able to manage their own time, and will need to complete the online scoring by end of day Monday 6 December.
