My hopes for 2014: Lawrence Conway, SLDC chief executive

The Westmorland Gazette: Lawrence Conway Lawrence Conway

The team at South Lake-land District Council is looking forward to 2014 with keen anticipation.

It will be a pivotal year for our ambitions to tackle the two biggest issues facing us – providing more jobs and affordable homes.

Our newly-adopted local plan has allocated land for 5,277 new homes and 20 employment sites.

It’s a plan which will take ten years to fulfil but work will start on achieving our targets over the next 12 months.

It is vital that we make South Lakeland a place for everyone to live, work and explore.

That means enabling homes which families can afford and jobs for young people which allow them to build a future in the area. South Lakeland is a fantastic place.

We want to do everything in our power to ensure it continues to grow and flourish in a way which benefits all sections of our community.”
