Work has begun to make a Haslingden play area better cope with heavy rain.
Victoria Park play area is prone to flooding when bad weather hits so Rossendale Council has invested in improvements such as raising the ground level of the area to help with drainage and fitting new matting.
Welcoming the improvements, Councillor Jackie Oakes, Portfolio Holder for Operations, said:
“We know flooding has been a major issue in Victoria Park when it rains heavily and this is the most cost effective and efficient solution to the problem. I am pleased we were able to find some funding to invest in this work because it’s a much loved park which sometimes can become unusable for days after when really bad weather hits.”
