A drop-in session will reveal some of Lancaster City Council’s priorities and visions for the district for 2018-2022.

The council is developing its four year plan and would like to hear from residents at an event at The Storey on Thursday April 12.

The plan, called ‘Ambitions’ sets out the council’s priorities and vision for the Lancaster district to grow and thrive as a vibrant regional centre in the north west of England.

The council says it is committed to making the most of the district’s many attributes as a great place to live, work and visit, and has set out its four ambitions in the plan for 2018-22:

• A thriving and prosperous economy

• Clean and safe neighbourhoods

• Healthy and happy communities

• A smart and forward-thinking council

The event will take place at The Storey on Meeting House Lane, Lancaster, LA1 1TH on Thursday, April 12. Everyone is welcome to attend between 2pm and 7pm to have a look at the developing plan and talk to Cabinet members and senior officers.

Coun Eileen Blamire, Leader of Lancaster City Council, said: “We are committed to ensuring the council plays the best part it possibly can to put our district well and truly on the map as being one of the best places to live, work and visit in the region, but it is vitally important that people have their say on how the council can achieve this.

“I would therefore urge everyone to come along to the informal drop-in session next week to find out more and share their views.”

This is the first of a number of drop-in sessions scheduled to take place across the district.
