Bacup has been described by Historic England as one of the best preserved cotton mill towns in England. Bacup was once a thriving northern town and ambitious plans are being developed by Rossendale Council for its revival.


During the last 5 years the successful Bacup Townscape Heritage Initiative (THI) saw the restoration of 15 buildings and upgrades to the public realm. Since the £2.2 million Initiative has finished, the appearance of the town centre has improved, encouraging new businesses to populate the surrounding properties.


Now the Bacup 2040 Vision and Masterplan has been developed to be the blueprint for Bacup for the next 20 years.


● The public realm is being redeveloped to allow consumers to navigate the town centre with ease.


● The new market square development is being planned to be a brand new space, combining the market, food and drink hall and a community hub.


● Bacup currently has a number of derelict buildings that are being brought back into use. These iconic buildings are being repurposed to bring in new businesses and residents.


The 2040 Vison and Masterplan will be funded from the Heritage Action Zone and Future High Street funding as well as council and private sector investment.


If you are interested in investing in Bacup town centre or you are a business wanting to relocate, we have a business relief package that can be combined with grant funding, and we would be pleased to hear from you.


If you are interested in discussing this opportunity, please email economicdevelopment@rossendalebc.gov.uk or phone us on 01706 252480.
