Development at BB4 8QY – Round Three!

David Rhodes


30/01/2015 – UPDATE ON PLANNED DEVELOPMENT at BB4 8QY (land opposite Goodshaw Avenue North).
Despite the adverse weather conditions, the LVRA Secretary and other representatives of the Limey Valley Residents Association put on their snow shoes and trekked up to Council Chambers at Bacup last night to attend the Development Control Committee hearing. There, they officially voiced the overwhelming objection to this proposed development on behalf of many local residents.
This was the third occasion the “developer” had submitted plans to the Council to develop 15 large homes on what is classed as open countryside and land which is prohibited from development by Rossendale Borough Council’s own core strategy (5yr building plan).
I am pleased to report that for the third time, the developer was REFUSED permission and the application was REJECTED.
However, please do note that there is an appeals process open to the “developer”.
At the LVRA we aim protect our area, it’s heritage and our beautiful open countryside. We work very hard to help you, the local residents, to be heard as a community voice. If you want to become more involved in (y)our community then please come along to our next monthly meeting which takes place at 8pm on Monday 9th February 2015 and will be held at CPA Social Club (bottom of commercial street).


  1. The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.

  2. An impressive share, I just given this onto a colleague who was doing a little analysis on this. And he in fact bought me breakfast because I found it for him.. smile. So let me reword that: Thnx for the treat! But yeah Thnkx for spending the time to discuss this, I feel strongly about it and love reading more on this topic. If possible, as you become expertise, would you mind updating your blog with more details? It is highly helpful for me. Big thumb up for this blog post!

  3. There are certainly a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the impact of just a moment?s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.
