Rossendale Borough Council has granted planning permission for the regeneration of a dilapidated and neglected site within Rawtenstall town centre for the first phase of the Spinning Point development. It is a mixed use development comprising a new eight-bay bus station and retail/café units, with car parking and landscaping. It also includes the refurbishment of the former Town Hall for offices and the demolition of buildings within a conservation area.
NJL acted on behalf of the RTB Partnership as planning agent for the proposal, co-ordinating the preparation of technical documents to support the planning application and preparing a Planning and Regeneration Statement. NJL submitted the application and drove it through the planning application process. This included reviewing draft planning conditions prepared by the Council to ensure they minimised onus on the developer and to assist with quicker delivery of the development. The scheme will be delivered by Barnfield Construction.
