Rossendale Council has issued the following update around Spinning Point Phase 2.
Councillor Alyson Barnes, Leader of the Council, said:
Rossendale is a place on the up and Rawtenstall is a huge part of the exciting plans we have for the borough.
There is a buzz in the town with the market rejuvenation and the regeneration scheme at Spinning Point.
We have changed the plans for phase two of the Spinning Point development, after listening to the public and understanding what people want. We are not building the retail units and will bring in more open space and more parking.
We have always been clear that unless the retail element adds to what we have in Rawtenstall, we will not build these retail units. There has been some interest, but not to the level and standard of what we want, or what will enhance Rawtenstall.
The state of the art spa will still be at the heart of the development with some living accommodation as well.
The spa will welcome local visitors looking for a relaxing day experience. Its world class facilities will provide an excellent boost to the local tourism economy.
We have received a significant amount of interest in the retail units at the bus station and are currently in talks with interested parties.
