Let’s hear ideas for The Rock

Todmorden Town Council has a pice of land at Cornholme - and is inviting townspeople to make suggestions as to how they would like to see it used.

The land, called The Rock, is just off Burnley Road at Vale, Cornholme, and some years ago had formerly been used as a BMX bike track.

But councillors are now seeking people’s opinion as to how they would like to see it used in the future.

To that end, they are holding a public consultation about The Rock.

It will be held at The Old Library community building, Parkside Road, Cornholme, on Thursday, October 9, from 6.30pm to 8.30pm.

Refreshments will be available.

A council spokesperson said: “Members of the public are invited to come along to share their views on this piece of community ground, and to bring their ideas for future improvement.

“There is no set brief - people can come along and talk to councillors about maybe their experiences with the site, or what would be a good thing to do with it - we want to get an overview as to how the community values it.”

Mayor of Todmorden Coun Michael Gill is ensuring young villagers have their say too - he will be talking to Cornholme School pupils about The Rock so that their ideas as to what it might be used for can be included in the mix.

Whether or not the council decides to do anything with the land depends on the ideas that people bring forward - but the hope is that the council will be able to improve it.
