Residents are being urged to have their say on a £50million levelling up bid which would be used to improve areas of Burnley, Hyndburn, Pendle and Rossendale.

The bid, set to be submitted by Lancashire County Council, will help in supporting jobs and businesses, providing for a greener environment, and improving the health of residents.

The council have said that four boroughs of East Lancashire will be the most likely to benefit and have the greatest potential to meet the fund’s objectives.

The bid would be used for things like changes to local streets, paths and open spaces to make local trips easier by walking and cycling; faster and more reliable public transport to get people to work, education, shops, services and green spaces; less reliance on our cars for local journeys; and improved road safety in local areas

Acting Executive Director of Growth, Environment and Transport, Phil Green said: "Our funding bid for Lancashire will be ambitious and if successful would bring many benefits to the county.

“Before we submit our bid for investment in transport priorities, we want to know what people think would benefit their local area and help them to make healthier and greener travel choices.

"No specific schemes or locations are being decided at this stage. We are looking at what might be possible, and what would best serve our communities, whilst meeting the government's objectives for this funding. People’s feedback will help us to understand what’s important in different areas, as well as helping us to develop our bid further."

If Lancashire's bid is successful, more detailed proposals will be developed with input from partners and with close engagement with residents, organisations and businesses.
