Last chance to have your say on draft Local Development Plan

Lancaster City Council’s consultation on a new draft Local Development Plan for the district is due to end on Friday 14th December.

The Local Plan will allocate land for the district’s future housing and commercial needs, protect land for its environmental, social and economic value and set out a series of planning policies which will manage future proposals for all types of development across the district.

The Local Plan also includes proposals for the regeneration of Central Morecambe via the Morecambe Area Action Plan.

 As part of the consultation the council organised a series of events across the district, where anyone interested was able to speak to council officers about any affects the Local Plan could have on their area.

Although these have now ended, the draft documents which comprise the Lancaster District Local Plan are still available to view at Lancaster and Morecambe Town Halls and local libraries.

“It is vital that local people are given the opportunity to offer their views on our draft Local Development Plan to help the council manage future proposals for all types of development across the district, urges Councillor Janice Hanson, who is Cabinet member with responsibility for economic regeneration and planning.

"Your views on the emerging Local Plan and future land allocations are important to us and I would welcome more people coming forward with their feedback on the documents.”
