The Canal Quarter
Proposals for a multi-use development for the 16-acre site
We are rethinking the scheme to redevelop the area east of the core city centre, previously known as Canal Corridor North, to bring forward a diverse range and mix of development.
Ever since large-scale housing clearance in the mid-20th century, the Canal Quarter has become under-utilised and isolated in terms of its role within the wider city centre. After many decades of false-starts the city council is now taking a more pro-active role in the future of the area.
Our ambitious vision is for a vibrant, sustainable and active Canal Quarter, integrated with the Lancaster Canal and served by areas of new public open space. A Quarter where contemporary development and hidden heritage can combine to create a diverse residential, commercial, cultural and recreational neighbourhood.
