Lancaster Canal Quarter Strategic Regeneration Framework

Stakeholder and Community Engagement

We have commissioned a specialist consultant team, GVA/Planit-IE, to create a strategic master-planning framework with the intention this is adopted as a Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) for the Canal Quarter.

This area of the city centre has long been recognised as offering unique potential for development and investment. The council understands the importance of getting this project right - both in terms of what is delivered in the area and its contribution to the prosperity and vibrancy of our city.

An on-going programme of engagement and consultation has been designed to run alongside the spatial, technical and commercial design elements of the SRF.

Earlier this year consultants held a stakeholder workshop and two day community consultation event and their findings can be viewed in the Stakeholder and Community Engagement Report. (PDF, 2.8MB)

Further stakeholder and youngperson's workshops will take place in July. Formal consultation on the SRF is expected to take place later in the summer.
