The March NLGP meeting will be held at THE GREGSON, MOOR LANE, LANCASTER LA1 3PY at 7.45 p.m. This will be a public meeting to look at the City Council’s plans for the Canal Corridor and the North Lancashire Green Party’s alternative.
For background: the Canal Corridor is the stretch of land (currently mostly car park) in Lancaster between Moor Lane, Phoenix Street and Edward Street. Lancaster City Council is currently considering plans for a large, retail-led development which will oblige the City Council to borrow large sums of money and accept considerable financial risk. The North Lancashire Green Party would prefer to see public-led regeneration of the land incrementally, beginning with housing.
