Masterplan for land at Holden Fold, Darwen – Public Consultation 7th September to 5th October 2020
Blackburn with Darwen Council has today commenced a 4-week public consultation of a draft Masterplan for land at Holden Fold, Darwen. The land is allocated in the current Local Plan for the Borough for housing development. The draft masterplan sets out a clear vision for the site and shows how new homes and associated infrastructure could be designed and delivered. The site provides a significant development opportunity for around 430 new homes. These would be delivered in phases alongside new on-site infrastructure and contributions to off-site infrastructure as well.
The Council would like to hear your view on the draft proposals and so it has prepared a range of consultation material. Any comments received will be reviewed and taken into account in finalising the Masterplan. Once completed the Masterplan will be a key consideration in any future planning applications on the site.
Full details of the public consultation material are available to view through the Council’s consultation portal at https://www.blackburn.gov.uk/about-council/consultations/open-consultations. We would encourage you to view the consultation material and respond online where possible.
If you have any queries or would like to discuss the proposals further then please direct any initial queries to the Forward Planning team email@example.com or call 01254 585 962
