The Future of Lancaster Canal Quarter

Earlier this year a series of engagement events were held with representatives from a wide body of organisations and consultation was undertaken with the wider community to ask what the document should contain, leading to the publication of a draft Canal Quarter Strategic Regeneration Framework (draft Supplementary Planning Document (SPD)) which, once approved, will be a material consideration in planning decisions within the area.

The draft Canal Quarter Strategic Regeneration Framework (draft SPD) for the Canal Quarter presents a vision and development strategies, supported by a set of design principles, to guide the future development of the area over the next 15-20 years, including acceptable uses of land / buildings and essential ingredients such as sustainability and the incorporation of green space.

People are now being asked to have their say on this vision. The consultation runs for 8 weeks until Monday 10 February 2020. All comments received will be taken into consideration when developing the final SPD and its adoption by Lancaster City Council.

You will need to consider the draft Document before making your response
