Housing Allocations Policy Review
We have a responsibility to ensure that our Allocation Policy reflects the needs of the district and is compliant with any legislative changes and government guidance. We regularly review the policy and following the recent review in 2018 we have decided that we need to make some minor changes to ensure that we can carry on ensuring that we meet the changing needs of our customers, make the best use of the social housing stock and continue to meet the challenges of the Homelessness Reduction Act and recent guidance regarding improving access to social housing for victims of domestic abuse.

Help shape how the number and concentration of Houses in Multiple Occupation are managed
The newly adopted Local Plan seeks to restrict the concentration of Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs) to a maximum of 10% in any 100m radius. Lancaster City Council has published a draft Supplementary Planning Document (SPD), which outlines how the local plan policy (policy DM13) will be implemented to control the number and concentration of HMOs in the district. This is a chance for people to have their say about how policy DM13 will be implemented. This consultation closes on Friday 25th September 2020. More details here...
Consultation on dog control PSPOs
The council needs to review its four dog-related Public Space Protection Orders (PSPOs), previously known as dog control orders, which outline the council’s current powers to tackle problems caused by irresponsible dog owners. We are not proposing to make any changes to the four dog PSPOs, but we would like your views on the orders and any ideas that you may have to encourage responsible dog ownership. This consultation closes on Friday 21 August 2020
