It is not possible to be specific about numbers of homes expected to be built each year. The Joint Lancashire Structure Plan makes provision for the following annual average number of dwellings each year until 2016:

Number of dwellings
Lancaster 320
Wyre 205
Lancashire (31)2,380

(31) Of which the Lancaster and Wyre figures are a subset.

It is for local planning authorities to monitor and manage dwellings actually built and planning permissions granted.
