Lancaster Local Plan 9 February- 6 April 2018 : Why this is vital and how to respond.
Still worried about the impact on flooding, traffic congestion, air pollution, and
services from 3.500 new houses between Scotforth and Galgate?
Why respond to the local plan now? Haven't we already done that after the Drop In sessions last year?
The Local Plan was published 9 February 2018 and is open for public consultation until 5pm on Friday 6th April.
It is essential that all CLOUD supporters do object now. Previous objections to the draft plan last year will NOT be taken into account in the next stage of the planning process - they will simply be ignored!
It matters because the comments and objections that go in before 6 April will be examined by an independent Planning Inspector, appointed by central government. The Inspector will be independent of Lancaster City Council and will decide whether the Plan should go ahead - whether it is legally compliant and sound, to use the official terminology. We can make a difference at this stage!
This is your last chance - and a crucial one - to object to Bailrigg Garden Village (BGV).
