Lancaster City Council is inviting comments on its draft parking strategy for the district.

The draft strategy was approved by the council’s cabinet in October and is now open to public consultation.

Its aim is to provide a comprehensive approach to parking management which will improve the service provided directly to customers whilst also meeting the wider public needs of sustainability and amenity.

Coun Tim Hamilton-Cox, cabinet member with responsibility for parking, said: “The Lancaster district is approaching a period of great challenges, changes and potential development.

“In the next few years we will not only see the completion of the Heysham to M6 link road but also the potential development of Lancaster Castle as a major tourist attraction, new plans to redevelop the Canal Corridor North site, and the opportunity to upgrade Morecambe town centre through the Morecambe Area Action Plan.

“All of these developments will have an effect on parking provision so the time is now right to update the strategy.”

The draft parking strategy is available to view at www.lancaster.gov.uk/draft-parking-strategy.

The deadline for comments is December 31.
