CQAG are an informal community group for concerned locals to get involved in creating our own vision for the Lancaster Canal Quarter proposed development. We believe that the land in the area is in need of redevelopment, and that it should reflect the needs of the City and its residents and be community rather than developer led.
We welcome Lancaster City Council’s announcement that it has decided to withdraw from its arrangements with developer British Land.
“We welcome the decision and hope that this marks the beginning of real consultation and community participation in future planning for the Canal Quarter,” said a spokesperson for CCAG. “We don’t just want to be fed information, we want to be treated as equal partners, as outlined in the Council’s own published engagement guidance.”
The group held a consultation stall at the Spring Market in Lancaster’s Market Square on 30th March 2018, and more meetings will be announced soon.
