Following the Expression Of Interest we submitted earlier this month we visited Heritage Lottery Fund offices to discuss ideas for Burrs Countryside Park further. The meeting with Louise and Sophie was really quite positive and we have come away with a better idea of how we should shape the final submission. Of course we will be meeting you all again over the next month or two to share in more detail but please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions in the meantime. Thanks.
We are delighted to announce that we are working in partnership with Bury Metropolitan Borough Council and East Lancashire Railway in the development and improvement of Burrs Country Park. Using the Burrs Country Park Strategy 2015 – 2029 as a foundation we are starting to identify priorities and sources of funding which will lead to the improvements within this document. As the programme of work develops and leads to physical improvements on the ground we will be looking for a steer from local residents and users of Burrs Country Park. If you would be interested in getting involved in any aspect or would simply like to know what’s going on in terms of progress, physical improvements community involvement opportunities please book mark this page and or contact us through this page at any time. Looking forward to hearing from you 🙂
