University of Cumbria to hold consultation over new student accommodation

THE University of Cumbria will hold a public exhibition to consider options for new student accommodation within its existing estate in Ambleside.

Members of the public, staff and students are being urged to give feedback on proposals at two consultation events.

The events will allow people to view different options for the creation of the student accommodation, and representatives of the university will be present to answer questions.

The sessions take place at the Beehive Building in Ambleside on Friday February 21 between noon and 7pm, and Saturday February 22 between 9am and 1pm.

University of Cumbria chief operating officer Janet Whitworth said: “This event is part of an ongoing consultation process for the redevelopment of our Ambleside campus and we would be grateful to hear the views of all our stakeholders.

“We have continued to listen to our staff and stakeholders throughout the redevelopment process, and adjusted plans to incorporate feedback received from all other consultation exercises.

“We will do the same for the student accommodation consultation as understanding ongoing views, particularly of those living in the local area, is extremely important to us to ensure any future development has positive outcomes for both community and our students.”

The university is encouraging people to give comments by viewing the exhibition in person.

After the workshop event, the exhibition boards will be moved to Ambleside Library where people can continue to provide feedback.

Anyone unable to attend in person may view the material online at www.cumbria.ac.uk/ambleside from Friday 21 February - all comments must be returned by midnight Saturday March 22.

Feedback can also be sent by post by downloading the feedback form from the website and sending it to Maria White, Deloitte LLP, 1 City Square, Leeds, LS1 2AL by Friday March 21.
