Have your say!
Lancaster City Council is currently consulting on the Local Plan: The draft Strategic Policies and Land Allocations Development Plan Document (DPD), accompanied by a policies map, shows sites that will be developed or protected from development. The revised draft Development Management Development Plan Document (DPD), provides the policies which are used to consider planning applications. The Sustainability Appraisal helps to ensure that the social, economic and environmental effects of policies and plans are understood and fully taken into consideration. Consultation outcomes will help shape the local plan documents that will be formally published, potentially late 2017 and then submitted to government for independent Examination. All documents relating to this stage of consultation and how to respond can be found below.
We welcome your views on the Local Plan documents
