Success stories throughout Eden, Cumbria

Eden is host to diverse construction firms producing award winning developments in this highly attractive area.

The District’s emerging Local Plan has identified 3,600 new houses will need to be built by 2032 to accommodate its growing population.  This need for new housing will bring significant opportunities in the construction sector and those supply chain businesses who support it. Companies such as Atkinson Building Contractors, Story Homes and Persimmon Homes are all active in the area.

Construction companies are well supported in the supply chain by the likes of Metcalfe Plant Hire Ltd, J T Atkinson Building Supplies and Penrith Building Supplies.

There is significant interest from developers and home owners in Eden around the use of low carbon technologies being used in both residential and commercial settings. This interest and need has led to the growth and creation of a number of renewable firms which looks set to continue into the future most notable being Logic Renewables and Love Solar.

In addition a large scale development for Cumbria could provide huge potential for local Eden construction businesses to get involved in the supply chain. United Utilities has a new water pipeline proposed for Cumbria
