Have Your Say On 12,000 Lancaster Homes Plan

Plans for more than 12,000 new homes that could be built across Lancaster and beyond have been published.

Several new employment sites could also be created - bringing more than nine-thousand new jobs to the district.

People can comment on the city council's plans until April.

The plan also includes land allocations for the open spaces, shops and community facilities necessary to create places people want to live, work and do business.

Councillors formally approved publication of the Local Plan in December and there is now an eight week period in which people can comment on the final documents before they are submitted for examination by an independent planning inspector. 

Councillor Janice Hanson, cabinet member with responsibility for planning and regeneration, said: “It is important to remember that the Local Plan is about the future.

“Today’s circumstances will not be tomorrow’s and we need to lift our eyes to the horizon. This plan looks ahead to where today’s children will live, work and raise families in 20-25 years.

“It sets out a strong vision for the future and one which I believe will enable people to thrive and prosper, wherever they live in the district."

More details are here and the deadline for responses is 5pm on Friday April 6th.
