Lancaster Castle, Lancaster

A concept and feasibility study, on behalf of The Duchy of Lancaster, to assess the potential re-use of the castle, following the closure of the former HMP Lancaster in 2011.

• Cass Associates was commissioned by Malcolm Reading Consultants to provide strategic planning, urban design and landscape design services for a two-staged study.
• An initial Interim Report set out the strategic concepts for the future of the Castle and how to achieve it.
• The second stage culminated in a Feasibility Study Report which refined the potential uses, produced concept plans, along with a delivery plan and costings.

Services:  Planning, Landscape Architecture, Urban Design
