Local people and organisations are being urged to give their views by Wednesday 1st March on how they think land at Vivary Way, Colne, should be used.

Pendle Council owns the land which is currently leased by Pendle Leisure Trust.

 It was used for their Urban Altitude outdoor adventure climbing facility which closed in April last year.

And previously the Trust used the land for outdoor sports on an all-weather pitch.

Councillor Mohammed Iqbal, Leader of Pendle Council, said:

“This land is going to have a new lease of life and we’re keen for local people to give us suggestions for its future use.

People can give their views by filling in a short form on Pendle Council’s website: www.pendle.gov.uk/vivary

Pendle Council is also displaying information at Pendle Leisure Centre and Colne Library with slips to fill in and post in the boxes provided.

“People need to bear in mind the fact that Pendle Council supports the reinstatement of the railway line from Colne to Skipton, should it be re-opened in future,” said Councillor Iqbal.

“If the rail track got the go ahead at some point, the route goes through this land.

“That’s why we’re looking for a use which will not stop this possible development,” he explained.

“Local businesses have already expressed an interest in using the land,” he added.
