WW1 Memorial Garden Set to Get Go Ahead

Lancashire town Leyland has unveiled plans to create a First World War memorial and peace garden as part of an ongoing regeneration scheme.

South RIbble Council’s regeneration team have submitted an application with a decision set to be imminent. The council’s planning officers have now recommended to the planning committee that the plan goes ahead. Supporting documents read;

“The structure will form part of a series of “gateway” public art structures denoting and enhancing the entrances to Leyland. Should permission be granted, changes to the site would result in a highly visible, yet relatively tranquil site.”

The government has pledged a heritage fund in order to encourage such features as we move towards a century since the beginning of the Great War, with the Leyland project in prime position to secure funding. Final design will be subject to public consultation.
