Proffitts are delighted to be working alongside Rossendale Borough Council and Rising Bridge Community Association on plans to improve Worsley Park in Acre Village near Haslingden. It's a big space, so the work will be approached in 3 phases. 

We have outlined some ideas for improvements on the masterplan below, and we would like local people and park users to let us know what they think about the proposed changes. You can comment on the existing plan, and you can also let us know if you have any other suggestions or recommendations for the space too.

If you have difficulty viewing the plan, please click on this link for a larger, clearer image: Worsley Park

The survey is very short and should only take a few minutes to complete – but we would really welcome your feedback.

Worsley Park Masterplan

Question Title

* 1. The plan suggests approaching the project 3 phases:

The focus for phase 1 will be upgrading the play area including pathways, surfacing and planting around the site, and will also involve adding a natural play space.

Suggestions for phase 2 include refurbishment of the tennis courts, improving access to the bowling green and installing new seating and tables around the park.

A wildflower meadow and a growing area with raised beds and edible herbs, fruit and vegetables will be created in phase 3. The group also hope to renovate the existing Pavilion to provide space for community events and activities. 

Work to upgrade pathways and surfacing will take place during all three phases. Woodland management to improve the biodiversity in the park will also take place throughout the project and will include replanting new woodland understorey layer of shrubs, herbaceous plants and bulbs.
