Blackburn Corporation Park

Inspire Planning Solutions are frequently asked to provide support on planning and other applications. This commonly takes the form of a technical report.

We were instructed to produce a Heritage Statement and provide design advice on the removal of a stone boundary wall within the
Corporation Park Conservation Area in Blackburn on a former college building. We were able to demonstrate how the new opening would have a neutral impact on the Conservation Area. The installation of new high quality gates in a combination of timber and steel would maintain the existing height and by sympathetic to the special character of the area.
The application was as a result recommended for approval. We made a presentation to Councillors on the Planning Committee and the application was approved.

We have subsequently retained to discharge the conditions and are also currently advising on other developments on this site.
