Council to launch new sustainable communities strategy

The Lancaster District Local Strategic Partnership will be launching its new Sustainable Community Strategy on Friday (12th December) at The Platform in Morecambe.

The strategy sets out the long term vision for the district and highlights how the partnership will deliver improvements for the quality of life for everyone in the Lancaster district.

The Lancaster District Local Strategic Partnership (LDLSP) is made up of public, private, voluntary, community and faith sector representatives, and includes major service providers such as Lancaster City Council, Lancashire County Council, Lancashire Constabulary, Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service, and NHS North Lancashire.

The strategy will be available in electronic copy from the Lancaster City Council website, please visit www.lancaster.gov.uk/lsp for further details.

“I'm delighted to see this Strategy being launched," commented Jacqui Thompson, chair of the LDLSP. "It will target problems that affect everyone in the district, and raise the quality of life for our entire community. I know that we face many challenges in the district, but I am confident that we can deliver results by working together in partnership.”

“This strategy results from a lengthy period of consultation and planning, and has now received endorsement from the city council," explains Coun Roger Mace, vice chair of the LDLSP and leader of Lancaster City Council. "Implementation of the related action plans will offer benefits for all who live, work or play in our district.”

Following the launch event on 12 December, the strategy will be taken on a six month roadshow across the entire district, allowing the local community to learn more about the strategy, the work of the Partnership as a whole and become more involved in the work of the LSP.
