About the Local Plan

St George's Quay, Lancaster

St George's Quay, Lancaster

Work is underway on an updated local plan which will shape the future of the Lancaster District.  This updated local plan will guide development in the Lancaster District for the next 15 years. We know we have to plan for more housing. We also need to plan for the new employment, open spaces, shops and community facilities necessary to create places people want to live, work and do business.  One of the key reasons for needing the Local Plan update is that the Government has changed the way that we plan for development, particularly for new housing. It is the responsibility of individual local authorities to assess how much development is needed in its area and how much should be provided.
