Burnley Council has published it’s Emerging Local Plan Issues & Options Document. It contains options for new housing and industrial estates.
Farmland on both sides of Shuttleworth Mead Business Park has been identified as possible sites for new industrial estates. All this land is included in the green belt and cannot be built on unless the green belt is changed by the ‘Emerging Local Plan’.
The Blackburn Road and the Eaves Barn Farm sites are shown on the satellite map opposite. They will add another 29 hectares/71 acres of ‘sheds’ to the existing ones on the adjoining Simonestone, Shuttleworth Mead and Altham industrial estates.
