Bus station decision makers in the hot seat

Decision makers behind the work on a new £5m bus station will be facing questions from local business people at a breakfast meeting organised for Thursday 27th February at Liz ‘n’ Lils.  The session is the second in a series of BID Breakfast events staged by the committee behind the Blackburn BID (Business Improvement District) aimed at giving traders the chance to have their say in how their levy will be invested in regenerating the area.

The development also includes a new bus interchange that is being built on the boulevard near the railway station. The scheme aims to bring major improvements for bus passengers as well as linking better transport links with the Mall and the market.

Mike Cliffe, Strategic Transport Manager has been invited to meet businesses face to face and will be able to answer questions from 8am.  There’s also an update on progress on the work going on around the Cathedral with Clare Turner, Cathedral Quarter Regeneration Manager.

Mark Smith, Blackburn BID Chairman said, Traders should come along to these meetings to ask the questions that need answering and to come up with collective ideas and solutions to add value to the investment being made by the council’s regeneration team.  It’s your town and your opinions matter.  Come along to have a say and make a genuine difference.’
