Changes planned for The Lanes shopping centre in Carlisle

By Pamela McGowan

Last updated at 09:09, Thursday, 05 November 2015

Efforts are underway to change part of the Lanes Shopping Centre in Carlisle, creating a new seating area and blocking out the elements.



If approved, it will also mean the walkway along East Tower Lane, past Debenhams’ main entrance and Peter Jackson, can be closed off at nights.

A couple of years ago, following some minor vandalism, the Lanes secured permission to close off the main square of the shopping centre during the evenings.

But the rest of the centre, including East Tower Lane and Peascod Lane, have remained open.

Now bosses have applied for permission to install sliding doors to seal off the square outside Debenhams from the elements. The automatic doors would be locked at nights.

David Jackson, centre director, explained: “It’s always been a windy corridor so putting in glazed doors will change the ambience of the area for the better.

“At the moment it’s a nice open area but a bit sterile.

Two long-standing Carlisle newsagents shops to close

Published at 15:59, Thursday, 05 November 2015

Two Carlisle newsagents are shutting up shop for the final time tonight.



London Road Stores, and Simpson Newsagents in Lonsdale Street, will close their doors for the final time at 6pm today.

Geoff Simpson, who runs both shops, said he was reluctant but had no option due to the influx of big-name bargain retailers.

Mr Simpson has run London Road Stores for the past 34 years and bought Lonsdale News, near Carlisle Bus Station, just over two years ago.

Discount cosmetics firm opening store in Carlisle shopping centre

Last updated at 12:37, Friday, 06 November 2015

The discount cosmetics and toiletries retailer Savers Health and Beauty is opening a store in Carlisle.



The chain has taken a lease on a unit at Earls Lane Shopping fronting Lowther Street and expects to open early next month.

It is the first new letting at Earls Lane since the shopping centre was acquired for £1.4 million this summer by Birkwood Estates, a family-owned property business based in Macclesfield.

Birkwood says that an existing tenant, Coco Bay, is expanding and it is confident of securing more occupiers as it aims to get Earls Lane fully let.

The L-shaped shopping centre, between Lowther Street and Lonsdale Street, incorporates Carlisle bus station.

The principal occupiers are Stagecoach and TJ Morris, trading as Home Bargains. The only others are Games Workshop, Tanzo and Coco Bay Tanning Salon. Around half the units are vacant.

Savers will occupy Toymaster's former premises, which have stood empty since Conway Toymaster fell into administration in January last year.

Joanna Lloyd, managing director of Birkwood Estates, said: “We are very excited to announce Savers Health and Beauty as a key new tenant.

“One of our existing tenants, Coco Bay, have renewed their lease and taken out a lease on adjoining unit where they are looking to open a hair and beauty salon.

Store giants urged to take over closed corner shop

Last updated at 09:47, Friday, 13 November 2015

A plea has gone out to supermarket chains to take over the now closed Flimby Paper Shop.

The popular corner shop, which had also built up a reputation for its bakery, closed suddenly on October 22.

Town councillor Carni McCarron-Holmes asked colleagues to join together to write to Tesco and Asda to see if either would be willing to take on the premises as a convenience store.

It follows Tesco taking over the former Bounty Inn on Maryport’s Victory Crescent to turn it into a One Stop Shop.

Mrs McCarron-Holmes said the shop would be a loss to the village and a supermarket chain would be the ideal choice to take it over.

Cllr Peter Kendall endorsed the idea.

Lidl gets planning go-ahead for its largest UK store

By Matthew Cobb

Last updated at 13:20, Thursday, 12 November 2015

The way has finally been cleared for a supermarket chain to open its biggest UK store in west Cumbria.



Planners have given Lidl permission to build a massive shop in Maryport after months of wrangling.

Mayor of Maryport Linda Radcliffe said is delighted the German chain had finally been given the go-ahead to start work by Allerdale Council.

Building was due to start earlier this year but was postponed following an objection by Sport England over the relocation of sports facilities on the proposed site – but a resolution has now been reached with Allerdale Council.

“It’s not only fantastic news for Maryport but also the towns that surround it,” Mrs Radcliffe told the News & Star.

“I just wish it was ready to open next week.”

She added that the town had long needed a second supermarket, given that at present it is only served by the Co-op in Curzon Street.

She said she is glad that Lidl has indicated it is prepared to turn to people already living in the town to fill about 30 jobs.

“It’s great that they’re going to try and look for local people to fill the roles,” Mrs Radcliffe added.

The new store will be build on land off Curzon Street and will cover an area of 2,428 sq m, with 100 parking spaces. Existing playing facilities will be relocated.

With little over six weeks until Christmas, retailers hope their busiest time of the year starts tomorrow.

Late-night shopping runs in Carlisle every Thursday until December 17 – with a string of incentives being put on by the city council to entice people.

To get things underway, there will be live entertainment outside the Old Town Hall featuring The Lazy River Band on the bandstand and a performance by Astral Circus. Meanwhile in The Lanes, youngsters will be able to get their faces painted by Silly Gilly or pick up a balloon model from Stu-di-doo and Jason the Juggler. There will also be the opportunity to see Santa and his elves who will be visiting some shops.

City council leader Colin Glover said: “We’ve been working with local businesses, including cafes and bars as well as stores to make sure that there is plenty going on.

Carlisle traders’ fury over plan to cut disc parking time

By Pam McClounie

Last updated at 12:21, Thursday, 19 November 2015

Bosses say plans to change parking rules outside their businesses would drive customers away and kill off custom.



Traders in Carlisle’s Denton Holme neighbourhood have hit out against proposals to alter the time limit on disc parking, warning it could be a fatal blow for some shops.

Cumbria County Council has drafted a plan to change some parking rules in a zone that covers part of the city just off the city centre.

This includes the district of Denton Holme. One of the proposals is to reduce the time people can use a disc to park on some of the streets from two hours to one hour.

This set-up has been in operation for 20 years but the council says loss of industry means employees are no longer parking on the streets and demand is now from residents.

It says it would like to “increase turnover on those streets and discourage short term parking”.

Some traders who own shops on Denton Street say the proposal would “crucify” them.

Joanne Hodgson, who owns the Gossip hair salon, said: “I’ve been here 27 years and it gets worse every year. Businesses are struggling as it is. This proposal is absolutely stupid. It will crucify Denton Holme.”

Sarah Clifford, 35, owner of Escape Hair and Beauty, on Denton Street, said: “If a customer is having a colour then we have to keep nipping out and changing the discs. One hour just isn’t long enough.”

Mrs Clifford is thinking of getting a petition together.

Italian chain planning Carlisle city centre restaurant

Last updated at 10:59, Sunday, 22 November 2015

A leading Italian restaurant chain has revealed plans to move into one of Carlisle city centre’s most prominent sites.



Prezzo, which has more than 200 branches across the UK, wants to open in premises in Warwick Road occupied by the Andalusian tapas bar.

Plans have been lodged with Carlisle City Council for approval to erect Prezzo signs on the building ahead of an application for full planning permission.

A Prezzo spokesman said: “We can confirm that we are aiming to open a Prezzo restaurant in Carlisle. The site is currently a tapas bar.

“Prezzo will be applying for full planning permission for the site in due course.

“We believe that a Prezzo restaurant will be a good addition to the social and eating out scene in Carlisle.”

The application lodged by Prezzo, which has opened several restaurants in premises recognised for their architectural value, is for five signs including illuminated menu boxes and windbreaks around the external seating area.

It is understood that the company is currently in negotiations with the landlord of the Andalusian to take over the site.

Backing for planned Lidl supermarket

by Matthew Cobb

Last updated at 13:27, Tuesday, 24 November 2015

Nearly two thirds of people responding to plans for a new budget supermarket in west Cumbria have backed them.



And there are hopes that the firm’s arrival could halt the tide of people travelling elsewhere for shopping.

Moves to build a Lidl at Cockermouth – the latest step in the German chain’s expansion into the west of the county – gained the approval of 63 per cent of those asked their opinion.

The retailer was recently given permission to build its largest UK store in Maryport.

This latest plan, if approved, will see the demolition of existing buildings in Cockermouth belonging to Fairfield garage, Travis Perkins and WCF Pet and Equestrian on a site in Station Road.

A new pet shop would also be built on the land, alongside the supermarket.

A statement provided on behalf of both Lidl and WCF Pet and Equestrian said that 57 responses were received from a public consultation, with 63 per cent of those favouring the development “in principle”.

Half of the responses submitted said the new shop would benefit the area.

The statement said the consultation received a response that “demonstrated clear support for the redevelopment of the site for a replacement WCF store and new Lidl foodstore”.

Pioneer to open new foodhall at Rosehill

Published at 09:45, Friday, 27 November 2015

Fifty new jobs will be created as Pioneer Foodservice prepares to open a new bigger food hall in Carlisle.



The company is moving its current operation at Rosehill, Carlisle, to bigger premises on the opposite side of Montgomery Way.

The new food hall will form the lynch-pin of a £4 million to £5m scheme planned by H&H Group on undeveloped land currently used as car park.

H&H acquired the site from Carlisle City Council earlier this year, paying a nominal sum because the land is contaminated and will need remediation.

The scheme also includes a 350-space car park and up to 10 industrial units. Overall, the auction mart group says, the development will create around 50 jobs.

It aims to start work on the Pioneer Foodhall and the car park next year, with the industrial units to follow in a final phase.

H&H Group chief executive Brian Richardson said: “This is a very significant development for the city, enhancing and further developing the Rosehill [Industrial] Estate, and most importantly creating jobs.

“This has been a long-term project and we have been working on it for several years together with the council.

“I am delighted we are now able to move forward towards submitting a planning application in the first half of 2016, with the building work scheduled to start as soon as possible."

Once construction starts, H&H has said, the scheme should be completed within 12 months.

Carlisle bar to be turned into tattoo parlour

By Jonny Irving

Last updated at 10:03, Tuesday, 01 December 2015

A new tattoo studio is set to open in Carlisle after permission was given to convert a city centre bar.

The former McQueen’s bar in Devonshire Street only opened in May last year by well-known businessman Ron Wood.
But it has closed its doors and plans to convert the premises, which used to house a branch of the Santander bank, have been approved by members of Carlisle City Council’s development control committee.

Mr Wood has let the premises to tattoo artists Ollie Wallace, Rob Richardson and Brad Johnstone, who previously worked together at Immortal Art Studio in Castle Street. They are now hoping to open soon under the name Border Tattoo Collective.

The plans to convert the premises were passed unanimously by the planning committee.

Documents show that the trio behind the new studio plan on opening the premises between 10am and 6pm Monday to Saturday.

Drawings reveal that the new studio will have two tattoo areas on the ground floor along with an office and washing facilities.

M&S opens new foodhall in Cumbrian town

By Sue Crawford

Last updated at 11:49, Thursday, 03 December 2015

Children and shoppers had something to sing about as the doors opened to the new Marks & Spencer food hall in Penrith.

Business was booming as crowds thronged the new store in King Street to a chorus of songs from pupils from the town’s North Lakes Primary School

Store manager, Matt Marston, officially declared the store open following a ribbon-cutting ceremony alongside his team of 60 employees and Sophie Weir, who fundraises for the store’s new charity partner, the Great North Air Ambulance Service.

Mr Marston said: “We have received overwhelming support from the local community. There has been a real sense of excitement in the run-up to today.

“With Christmas just around the corner, we have already taken lots of food orders. Our coffee pod is proving popular too.”

The new 8,900 sq ft store, which has 4,500 food and drink lines, is in the premises of the former Co-op supermarket.

Mr Marston added: “We were also delighted to be able to announce our new charity partnership with the Great North Air Ambulance Service today.

Each year M&S stores across the country get behind a local cause that we can channel our fundraising efforts into and the Great North Air Ambulance Service is a cause that all of the staff felt deserved our support, thanks to the great work they do in and around Cumbria.

Carlisle curry king feels like World Cup winner

By Freya Findlay

Published at 09:37, Saturday, 05 December 2015

AN INDIAN restaurant owner says he feels like a footballer winning the World Cup after being given a British Curry Award – again.

Sukur Ali was surprised and shocked when his Carlisle restaurant the Viceroy won the Best in the North West Award at ceremony in London on Monday.

It is the second time the restaurant, on Rigg Street, Shaddongate, has won the accolade, after also coming out on top in 2013.

Mr Ali said: “You know most football players dream of winning the World Cup. In our industry, everyone has a dream to win once in a lifetime a British Curry Award.”

Viceroy had to beat off tough competition from 5,000 other restaurants in the north west.

Without the restaurants knowing, mystery diners came and sampled their hospitality and food before making a shortlist of four restaurants.

The other three were based in Greater Manchester, Cheshire and Lancashire.

When asked what made his restaurant stand out, Mr Ali said: “I think the most important thing is smiling when people come in.

“Smiling for them as soon as they come in and saying, ‘Good evening madam’.

“If you’re starting nice, the ending will be nice as well.”

Opening date for Carlisle's temporary Tesco store

By Freya Findlay

Last updated at 12:15, Saturday, 12 December 2015

A temporary Tesco store being built in the car park of the company’s flood-hit supermarket in Carlisle will open next weekend.

Work is already underway to build a 10,000 square foot make-shift shop at Rosehill, with plans in place to open on Friday or Saturday at the latest.

Petrol pumps are set to reopen at the same time.

It could take months for the Tesco store itself to reopen as it has to be completely dried out.

Stock is still being cleared from the shelves and the floodwater has left behind mud all over the floor.

The temporary store’s construction speed depends on the wind because a crane is lowering portable cabins, which connect up, into place.

Dan Frith, development manager at Tesco, said: “Our issue is the crane can only lift up to a certain wind speed so that’s our battle.”

Mr Frith is no stranger to building temporary Tesco stores in a few weeks. He was involved in the construction of the temporary store on Siddick Road in Northside, Workington, in 2009 after the town’s main store in New Bridge Road was cut off to thousands of residents after flooding.

Flood-hit Sainsbury's supermarket set to reopen

Published at 15:23, Monday, 14 December 2015

A flood-hit supermarket will reopen in time for Christmas – with the forecourt shop open on Wednesday.



The Sainsbury’s store on Carlisle’s Caldewgate was badly hit when the Caldew burst its banks.

The petrol forecourt was also affected, and the entire site was shut down.

However, the supermarket giant has revealed its staff have worked round the clock and it will be reopening to shoppers next Tuesday, December 22.

A Sainsbury’s spokeswoman told the News & Star: “We are looking forward to reopening on December 22, just in time for Christmas.

“In the meantime, we’ve launched a Click & Collect service and are also helping customers by offering a broader range of food in the shop connected to our petrol filling station.”

Bid to include takeaway as part of Carlisle nightclub revamp

Botchergate in Carlisle looks set to get another takeaway, this time as part of the redevelopment of the former Mood nightclub building.

A planning application has been submitted to turn part of the property that housed the nightspot into a takeaway.

Last month it was revealed that the giant building – which has now stood empty for years and is regarded as an eyesore – is set to reopen as a new bar.

The development will also incorporate the neighbouring building as a separate nightspot, with the ventures named Tequila and Mint.

Now Tahir Ali, the businessman behind the plans, has applied for permission to turn a section of the unit into a new hot food takeaway, with a separate entrance from the main Botchergate street.

The proposals state: “The application is for change of use for part of the ground floor.

“This will include the introduction of an new entrance in the existing shop front to provide access to the unit independent of the main entrance to the rest of the building.

Restaurant to close next month after failing to tempt customers

By Staff Reporter

Last updated at 09:27, Friday, 18 December 2015

A restaurant offering Latin American cuisine is to close after failing to catch the public's imagination.

Rojo bar and grill, on Wilson Street, Workington, will shut its doors for the last time in the middle or the end of next month.

Kevin Norman, of owners T&N Cumbria, said: “We are reluctantly not taking up our option to extend the lease as our business has not grown as much as we expected.”

The restaurant – which opened in December 2013 and provides a Tex-Mex twist on BBQ classics - employs eight people. Most have taken the option of transferring to T&N's nearby Chasers pub.

“Changing to a more traditional cuisine is not really an option for us, as we wanted to give west Cumbria something different but it appears that there is not enough demand here for South American food,” said Mr Norman.

"We've been here for three years and we have tried to diversify the business. We just feel that for whatever reason, it is not working for us.”
