Housing plans in for Rossendale football ground
Euan Kellie Property Solutions has submitted an outline planning application to Rossendale Council on behalf of local property company Culzean Developments, seeking approval for the redevelopment of land partly occupied by the derelict stadium previously used by Rossendale United FC.
The football stadium was last used by non-league Rossendale United in 2011 and was badly damaged by a fire in 2012. Since this time the site has become derelict.
The proposals, designed by Halliday Meecham Architects, seek approval for up to 100 residential units, along with a dedicated children’s play area, and include access off Dark Lane.
As part of the proposed development a financial contribution will be made by the applicant which will deliver a replacement playing pitch at Marl Pits Leisure Centre in Rossendale.
A planning decision is expected in the first quarter of 2017.
