Have your say on future development

How much new housing should be built in Blackburn with Darwen and where should new homes be developed?

Where should new jobs, industry and shops be located? How much development should we allow in the countryside?

These are all questions which need answering as part of the consultation on Blackburn with Darwen Council’s core strategy.

The core strategy is a planning document which sets out future planning policies for the borough and highlights where/how much development will take place.

The consultation is running until Monday, December 21 and then all comments will be forwarded to the Secretary of State.

A display is being held at Blackburn and Darwen Markets where residents can view the plans.

Copies can also be found at Blackburn Town Hall, Blackburn Library, Darwen Town Hall, Darwen Library, Mill Hill Library, Livesey Library, Roman Road Library and Barlow Institute.

Councillor Alan Cottam, executive member for regeneration and environment, said: “It is important that residents have their say on how they want the future shape of the borough and this includes everything from housing to shops to business parks to green spaces.”
