RESIDENTS have until March 13 to have their say on how they would like to see Haslingden Market developed.

Rossendale Borough Council has secured £300,000 from the UK Shared Prosperity Fund and added a further £200,000 of council money to invest in the market off Blackburn Road.

A simple online questionnaire has been launched and residents are being asked to fill it in.

On the form it asks for suggestions and comments on what residents would like to see alter and how they use Haslingden, the borough’s other markets and those in neighbouring towns.

Already more than 300 people have completed the online survey, but to ensure that as many people as possible of all ages have their say three public consultation events will be held at Haslingden Library.

Each will be on a different day and at a different time, so they should work around most people’s commitments.

To take part in the survey call into the library on Wednesday February 22 from 9am to 11am, on Monday February 27 from 1pm to 3pm or Tuesday March 7 from 3pm to 3pm.

Once all the suggestions and views have been received, a scheme will be designed to incorporate the most popular responses.

The grant money must be spent by the end of the 2024/25 financial year. To complete the online survey, visit
