  1. Urban Showcase
    The Great Border City is a term often used to describe Carlisle. Being only a few miles from Scotland it is a border city, although whether it is "great" is debatable.

  7. Cumbria
    No mention of SSC of one of the biggest developments in the NE and Cumbria, which is the search for a new waste depository for Sellafield.
