HERITAGE consultants have been appointed to help decide the future of Lancaster Castle.

Malcolm Reading Consultants (MRC) have been appointed by building owner the Duchy of Lancaster to conduct a six-month study and draw up options for its future.

The consultants say they will consult all sections of the community, including Lancaster City Council, Lancaster University, business groups and residents.

Malcolm Reading, chairman of MRC, said: “This is a great opportunity to develop a plan which reconnects Lancaster Castle with the city and local community.

“We hope to speak to a large number of people, using workshops and questionnaires, to get their views on the castle’s future and their priorities for Lancaster.”
