Lancaster City Council Propose Garden Village

BBC Lancs

Sites to build 13,000 homes across Lancaster have been identified by the city council.

The proposal includes a new garden village of 3,300 properties in the south and industrial sites, which could create up to 9,500 jobs.

Lancaster City Council was asked by the government to identify development sites to make up a shortfall.

The plan will be discussed at a council meeting on 14 December. A consultation will be launched in 2017 if approved.

Councillor Janice Hanson said: “It’s important that we make progress so we can develop a final Local Plan to provide the opportunities for people to find work and have a decent home.”
