Thank you to everyone who has shared their feedback and ideas. We’ve gone through all of the comments, and we now have an updated plan for Victoria Park. You can see an updated copy of the plan below, or you can click here to see the image in a larger view: Victoria Park Masterplan v1

As mentioned previously, the improvement works will take place in phases:

Phase 1 works include upgrading pathways, surfacing, and drainage around the park. This includes tackling water run off issues in the wheeled sports area, providing a new path to the Clock Tower, and improving the surface around the Band Stand. Repairs to the Band Stand itself will also take place and tree works will be undertaken to allow more light to reach the area. New play equipment will also be installed during this phase, and a woodland walk with better surfacing, planting, and bat and bird boxes will be created too.

Phase 2 will see more access improvements, changes to the outdoor gym area, improvements to the wheeled sports area, the creation of a cycle track for children, and the addition of an outdoor learning facility.

During phase 3, the North, South and West entrances will be improved by making repairs and installing decorative signs and colourful planting. The fountain and multi-use games area will both be repaired, and woodland management projects including underplanting, tree surveys and crown lifting will begin.

The final phase of works, phase 4, includes boundary wall and railing repairs, the installation of a flagpole, the creation of trails, the installation of artwork and way makers, and further work on the bowling green.

As you can all imagine, this is a long-term plan for Victoria Park and the changes will need to take place over several years. However, now that we have a plan, the fundraising work can begin. This takes time, but as soon as we have any updates from funders about the project, we will let you know – so do keep checking back here for updates.

We had a lovely afternoon with local residents, councillors, council officers and representatives from the local school at Victoria Park last week. Everyone was full of ideas as to how the park could be improved to suit all users. We will now try and capture all of these ideas into one plan. Once we have a plan, we’ll share with the wider community in order to gain more feedback and a sense of priority – so look out for a survey and details popping through your letterbox soon. We’ll update you on progress here too, so check back regularly for more information.

Proffitts are delighted to be working alongside Rossendale Borough Council and Haslingden Community Partnership  on plans to improve Victoria Park in Haslingden.

The first step will be to meet with local representatives on site to find out what they think of the space and what they would like to see improved. Once this has been done, we’ll create a masterplan outlining some of the changes that could be made across the site. Then, once we have the plan, we will ask local residents and park users to let us know what they think about the proposed changes. You will be able to comment on the existing plan, and you can also let us know if you have any other suggestions or recommendations for the space too. Keep checking this site for updates on the masterplan and the survey too.
