- Rossendale Borough Council
- Rawtenstall derelict Town Centre site previously known as ‘The Valley Centre’
- First phase regeneration of 7,300 sq ft town hall
Working on behalf of the RTB Partnership (a joint venture between Barnfield Investment Properties Ltd, Rossendale Borough Council and Together Housing Group), we acted as planning agent for the planning application to regenerate a prominent brownfield town centre site in Rawtenstall, Lancashire. This site was formerly know as The Valley Centre and the new development is to be called Spinning Point.
The development comprised the redevelopment of a neglected and derelict site for an eight-bay bus station and retail/café units (Use Classes A1-A5 or B1) and car parking and part demolition and conversion of the Town Hall to offices. Our team prepared an accompanying Planning and Regeneration Statement and coordinated the host of technical documents that were required to support the application.
The planning application was approved at planning committee in February 2016 on the basis that the Council felt the public benefits outweighed any potential harm to heritage assets. We a re delighted to have secured this important planning permission of the first phase of the Spinning Point development as it will act as a catalyst for future regeneration on the wider site but also across the local area.
