Plans Submitted for Planning Approval for Restoration of Bandstand and Development of Bowling Pavilion in Todmorden’s Centre Vale Park

Following design work with user groups and information days for public comment and feedback, Planning Applications for both the restoration of the Grade II Listed Bandstand and redevelopment of the Bowling Pavilion have now been submitted by Buttress Architects on behalf of Todmorden Town Council, Project Partner for Todmorden Town Deal Centre Vale Park projects.

Success in securing grants of c£500k in total from the National Heritage Lottery Grant and Community Ownership Fund on the back of investment from the Town Deal Fund, has enabled the Town Council to submit these Planning Applications in the knowledge that if approved, the Town Council can then formally move to Tender stage for actual construction works to commence.

Cllr Denis Skelton, Co-Leader, Todmorden Town Council said:

“The Town Council recently considered the design proposals for both schemes and fully supported these, with any minor amends following public feedback from recent information days, incorporated into the proposals now formally submitted.

“This is another key milestone achieved in taking forward the Centre Vale Park Projects as part of the Town Council’s leadership role for the Centre Vale Park Projects.”

Pam Warhurst, Chair, Todmorden Town Deal Board said:

“It’s great news that the Town Council has now submitted proposals for Planning Permission, an important step in delivering the two main projects, the Bandstand and Bowling Pavilion, as part of the improvements to Centre Vale Park.”
