Memories and stories about an historic city site will form part of its revamp, bosses have vowed.

Lancaster Council has launched a second series of ‘Beyond the Castle’ consultations, to give people a chance to shape the future of Castle Hill.

The event will take place on Saturday outside Lancaster Priory from 12pm to 3pm and there will be another chance for people to have their say on Saturday September 22.

Lancashire County Coun Michael Green, cabinet member for economic development, environment and planning, said: “This project isn’t a consultation, it’s co-design.

“We want to listen to people’s ideas so that we can design Beyond the Castle together.

“We’ve already had some really fun ideas from local people including a wildflower meadow, a treehouse and a castle built entirely of plastic bricks.

“And we still want people to give their ideas.

“There’s a lot of potential for the castle itself and we want to support this by creating an interesting space in the area around it, that reflects the traditions, history and future of this exciting site.”
