/ News / Plans for a new look for Bamber Bridge

Thanks to funding from the City Deal, residents of Bamber Bridge have the chance to shape exciting ideas to rejuvenate the centre of their town.

Initial ideas were drawn up based on feedback from residents, businesses and community groups and  include creating better public transport links and a more pedestrian-friendly and tree-lined Station Road.  The proposals also include improved lighting and community facilities as part of a comprehensive regeneration scheme which would cost in excess of £1m.

A wider consultation is now underway and residents and other stakeholders have until 12 February to have their say.

The proposals for Bamber Bridge are the first of a series of plans to improve town and village centres in the City Deal area, helping to make them more welcoming to those who want to live, work or start a business. With the funding certainty that the City Deal brings, good transport links and high quality facilities can be delivered sooner than we would otherwise be able to.
