Lancaster City Council said the development is part of The Luneside East Regeneration Project, which will create a new quarter of the city with a mix of housing, commercial space, high quality open spaces and walking and cycling routes.

Much of the land along the river Lune in St George’s Quay has already been developed for housing.

The former mill, St George’s Works, was demolished on November 5 2018.Our videographer Kelvin Stuttard captured some video of the work in progress.
