This new project is looking at how the Tawd Valley, often described as the ‘jewel in the crown of Skelmersdale’ could be developed to improve its appeal and accessibility to local people. A wide ranging consultation, organised by Groundwork, with the support of West Lancashire CVS, took place between June and October 2017. The results have fed directly into a Master Plan to guide future development and look at how the park can be sustainable.
A feedback event will be held on Thursday 18 January at West Lancashire College Skelmersdale, starting at 7pm and refreshments will be available from 6.30pm onwards. Members of the public with an interest in the Tawd Valley and how it might be developed are invited to attend.
The working group set up by West Lancashire Borough Council to deliver an exciting scheme for the Tawd Valley will outline progress being made. Other presentations will include feedback on the detailed consultation held by Groundwork and West Lancs CVS over summer 2017 and the resultant Masterplan for the Tawd Valley prepared by Groundwork, complete with proposed costings and works.
Council staff will then outline plans for the funding and phasing of the work required which is anticipated to start in April 2018
