Plans to transform the historic Lancaster Castle are to be opened up to the public at the end of this month.
The Duchy of Lancaster is opening Lancaster Castle, inviting people to view plans for its future use.
Proposals drawn up in conjunction with heritage experts Malcolm Reading Consultants will be on display in the former prison visitor’s centre from October 30 to November 2.
The plan is to transform the castle complex into a lively mixed-use urban quarter. The court service will remain, while new uses will include administrative facilities for the Duchy of Lancaster, a visitor attraction, a boutique hotel and arts and performance spaces.
Visitors to the public exhibition will be able to view the proposals, and will be encouraged give their feedback.
Representatives from The Duchy of Lancaster and Malcolm Reading Consultants will be on hand to answer questions and discuss the proposals in depth.
The consultation will run onTuesday, October 30 from 10am-5pm; Wednesday, October 31 from 10am-7pm; Thursday, November 1 from 10am-7pm and Friday, November 2 from 10am-5pm.
The information will also be available and feedback encouraged through a dedicated consultation website which will be launched on October 30th www.lancastercastle.org, alongside a special freephone enquiry line on 0800 345 7220.
