Over one hundred people went along to an event to look at the proposals for the future of Bacup town centre.

The ‘Come and Talk to Us’ session took place at the A B & D Centre and saw officers from Rossendale Borough Council and Lancashire County Council on hand to discuss the plans.

The session which was held on Thursday, November 9 ran from 2pm to 8pm and saw a video of the road layout, plans and a map available for view attracted 113 local residents.

In addition, to the event the Council has been consulting with local bus and taxi companies as well as presenting to the Bacup Business Association and surveying town centre businesses.

Councillor Andy MacNae, Executive Member for Regeneration, said:

“We were delighted with the attendance and got some really good feedback. There was a lot of enthusiasm for the project and we also had some suggestions of changes that people would like, all of which we are currently digesting. Over all it was a great event that showed just how many residents are passionate about the future of their town and want it to flourish, which at the end of the day is something we all want to see.”
