A key plan to revitalise and regenerate Morecambe has taken a step forward.

Lancaster City Council is to work with Carillion via the Lancashire Regeneration Property Partnership (LRPP), a leading integrated support services company, to identify possible opportunities for regenerating some of the town’s priority sites as part of the Morecambe Area Action Plan. Key proposals could include regenerating the area around the Platform, Festival Market and surrounding car parks with new community and visitor facilities.

Better management of the seafront and integrating it with the town centre, as well as further consideration of an approach to regenerating the central promenade site, will also be included in the talks.

Coun Janice Hanson, cabinet member with responsibility for economic regeneration, said: “At this stage nothing has been set in stone and we need to see what opportunities are available before making a decision on what is, and what is not, right for Morecambe.”
