Our draft Neighbourhood Plan went out for formal consultation in May and June. The response from Lancaster City Council came through in mid-July. One reason for the delay was that ours is the first Neighbourhood Plan to reach this stage in the Lancaster District. The other issue is that Lancaster has been preparing its own plans for development and housing and as a result, several developers have proposed areas in our villages which they think might be suitable for housing. The Steering Group is meeting with the City Council Planning Department in late August to find out more and to discuss ways forward. There'll be more information available soon.
