Lancaster City Council


Our commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant

Our district is steeped in military history and we value and recognise our armed forces community and their contribution. Lancaster City Council is committed to the Armed Forces Covenant and providing inclusive services such as housing and leisure and encouraging integration between the armed forces community and the wider local community.

We recognise the world class training that those in the forces receive as part of their service, and want to welcome this knowledge into our organisation.  As an employer, we offer Armed Forces Community employees flexibility, understanding of their needs and a clear policy framework in which our managers operate to ensure the best employment experience.

About us

Lancaster City Council is a district council and employs approximately 800 people. It is the people that the council employs that provide the essential services that touch the lives of our citizens, businesses and visitors every day of the year.

We provide a range of services including refuse collection, street cleansing, planning, housing, housing benefits, environmental health, licensing, economic development, tourism, museums, arts, leisure activities as well as supporting elected members.

Officers advise councillors about policy, technical, financial, legal and procedural matters of which they need to be aware when making decisions and then ensure that those policy decisions are implemented and turned into a range of essential services that citizens of the district need and want.

We are committed to providing great value for money services to all our 140,000 residents. Working in partnership with our communities, we have ambitious plans to deliver the best possible outcomes, now and in the future, right across our district - and it’s our own people who will make this happen. You could play a vital part in shaping our vision of the future.
