Have your say

Council bosses have invited people to have their say on plans for two conservation areas in Lancaster.

Carnforth and Cannon Hill are designated as conservation areas, which means they have areas of special architectural or historic interest.

Lancaster Council, when considering development proposals, has a duty to consider the preservation or enhancement of the character and appearance of the two areas.

It said the conservation area appraisals were being conducted to define and record the special architectural and historic interest of Carnforth and Cannon Hill.

Draft conservation area appraisals for both areas are now available for the public to view and have their say.

The appraisals are available to download from www.lancaster.gov.uk/planning/conservation/new-conservation-areas-carnforth-lancaster-cannon.

Paper copies can also be viewed in Lancaster and Morecambe Town Halls, or in Lancaster, Morecambe and Carnforth Libraries, during normal opening hours.

Comments should be returned by Friday, March 15, 2013 to The Conservation Team, Regeneration and Planning Service, PO Box 4, Lancaster Town Hall, Dalton Square, Lancaster LA1 1QR.

Alternatively, contact the team by sending an email to planningpolicy@lancaster.gov.uk.
