Regeneration & Economy
The council is regenerating South Ribble by delivering a number of improvement projects across the borough. There are schemes all over South Ribble that are designed to boost the appeal and vitality of the local area.
Projects delivered recently include upgrades to Leyland Railway Station, a shop front improvement scheme in Bamber Bridge, £500,000 play area at Withy Grove in Bamber Bridge, Hough Lane phase 1 upgrade, Farington Lodges regeneration, Leyland Heritage trail, new websites for local businesses, a new South Ribble Economic Regeneration Strategy, and a shop and parking improvement scheme completed in Tardy Gate. More projects are in the pipeline, including more improvements to Hough Lane.
Events delivered during 2011 included a Charity Beer & Wine Festival held to celebrate the royal wedding of HRH Prince William and Kate Middleton and the Leyland Festival Diamond. The Beer & Wine Festival, which took place on April 22nd – 25th, was held in the atmospheric British Commercial Vehicle Museum so visitors could see some of the fantastic exhibits there while they enjoyed the occasion. The Leyland Festival Diamond held on 9th & 10th July 2011 celebrated the diamond jubilee of Worden Park and offered a good old fashioned family day out in Leyland.
