Levelling Up Board
The Rossendale Levelling Up Board has been meeting since 2021 and made up of local businesses, the council, Nelson & Colne College and is supported by a wider network of local groups. The Board have developed a bid to the Government’s Levelling Up Fund.
Our £17.9m bid is the catalyst to accelerate growth in the local economy. We’re looking to reconfigure Rawtenstall market, completely redevelop the area where Bacup Market is currently sited, improve the surrounding areas of public realm, streamline Rawtenstall gyratory to improve traffic flow and create ‘The Bridge’ – a brand new centre for learning in the heart of Rawtenstall in partnership with Nelson & Colne College. We submitted our bid in early August and hope to hear the outcome from Government in the Autumn.
