Kendal Investment Strategy Contract

23rd September 2021

Continuum are delighted to confirm that alongside JTP, we have won the contract to prepare a Levelling Up Fund Bid on behalf of South Lakeland District Council.

The contact will be carried out in collaboration with a multi-disciplinary team including JTP, Andrew Cameron Associates, Monaghans, and Traillscape. The vision to which the Levelling Up Fund (LUF) Bid will look to catalyse is focused on exploiting Kendal’s existing Green Living opportunities and exceptional positioning at the gateway to two National Parks in addition to the plethora of cultural and heritage assets in the Town.

JTP’s specific experience and knowledge of Kendal town twinned with Continuum’s expertise in preparing business cases will enable the creation of an “exceptional” proposal that is unique to Kendal. The investment available from the LUF provides an opportunity to maximise the role of Kendal’s natural assets, green corridors and multi-modal access points with high quality integrated walking and cycling corridors. This Vision is establishing an exciting and compelling future for Kendal, emphasising its uniqueness.

An investment plan will be created whereby a range of potential schemes across Kendal will be critically appraised to allow for schemes to be selected for the LUF bid. The schemes identified and selected will be developed to RIBA stage 2. The project offers Continuum an exciting opportunity to showcase their development management expertise, along with a critical economic understanding, whilst creating the opportunity for Kendal access the sufficient investment to create the concept of “Kendalness”.
