LCC/Centros Development Agreement
Posted: Wednesday 23 May 2012
IOC is asking everybody to write to their local Councillors to ask them to vote against extending the development agreement with Centros to allow other developers to come forward with ideas for the site. We expect this vote to take place in the near future, and will post details when we know more, but it is a matter of urgency that you write as soon as possible so that councillors are made aware of the strength of feeling by local residents and others who visit the city.
Freedom of Information according to LCC
Posted: Thursday 10 May 2012
Once again we are in the surreal world of IOC v LCC. On 7th March IOC requested information under the Freedom of Information Act.
On 9th May we finally received what passes for disclosure under the Act from LCC.
Public Meeting - 15 May 2012
Posted: Tuesday 1 May 2012
Centros 2012 - Yes or No?
Venue: Lancaster Town Hall
Tuesday 15th of May 2012
Find out about the Centros Proposals and have your say.
After having its proposed development scheme for the Canal Corridor site rejected by the Secretary of State in 2009, Centros have now come forward with a revised Proposal which can be viewed at virtual-lancaster:
The last scheme was opposed by several organisations including It's Our City, a group composed of local residents and people from across Lancaster. The It's Our City core group recognises that it is important to find out what local people think of the latest Centros proposals before formally expressing it's view.
To this end, It's Our City has organised a public meeting at which the new scheme will be debated. The meeting will be independently chaired by Alan Whitaker who is a former Pro Vice Chancellor of Lancaster University. A member of the It's Our City core group will speak in a personal capacity in opposition to the scheme. The main political groups on Lancaster City Council have been invited to provide speakers. Questions and contributions will be taken from the floor after a short opening statement from each speaker.
