What is it all about?

CLOUD was formally constituted in October 2017 to campaign against the proposal to build 3,500 houses as Bailrigg garden village between Scotforth and Galgate and other unnecessary and unsustainable housing in Lancaster.

A management team is supported by a group of experts in Transport planning, air quality and planning law.

CLOUD is a corporate member of CPRE and affiliated to the Galgate Flood Action Group.

We are campaigning for a Local Plan which is based on robust evidence, is sustainable, addresses increased flood risk, congestion, air quality and is realistically costed. We question whether the Local plan in its current form is either sound or justified.
