After meeting with some of the Whitaker Park user groups and Rossendale Borough Council we have created the draft masterplan below which outlines some of the changes that could be made across the site. However, before the plan is finalised, we would like to find out what you think of the suggestions and give you the opportunity to share your own ideas for the park too. You can do that by completing this very short survey: Whitaker Park Feedback
If you need a paper copy of this survey then you can collect copies from, and return them to, both The Whitaker Cafe and Rawtenstall Library.
The results of this survey will help determine what improvements are tackled first, and help us put the other suggestions in priority order. Not all of the work can take place at once – it will be carried out over several years, and is dependent on successful fundraising.

Lovely to meet some of the Whitaker Museum staff, volunteers from Civic Pride and Rossendale Borough Council at Whitaker Park this week. We’ve now got some great ideas, so we can begin work on a draft masterplan. As soon as it’s ready, we’ll share it – so look out for more updates.
During our visit, we also saw some amazing historic stones from old Rossendale buildings that aren’t here any more. Take a look…
Proffitts are delighted to be working alongside Rossendale Borough Council on plan for improving Whitaker Park in Rawtenstall. Over the next few weeks we’ll be creating a draft masterplan of improvements for the site. Once the draft plan is completed, we’ll be sharing it with park users and residents to get feedback about the plans, and to find out if people have any other ideas for us to include too.
