Blackburn town centre in line for 10m facelift

Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council has appointed Jones Lang LaSalle to advise on a major redevelopment of Blackburn's town centre market place. The current site will become vacant in 2010 when the existing market moves into the soon to be extended Mall, adjacent to the existing market place. The 2.5 hectare site, which is set for a 10m face lift, will make way for a proposed major mixed use scheme.

Donna Barber, Associate Director in Jones Lang LaSalle's Development and Asset Strategy team said: "This prime site is at the heart of the town centre and has the potential to deliver major regeneration benefits to the town including new shops, jobs, homes and visitor attractions. The consultants, led by Jones Lang LaSalle are working to make sure that the options being considered complement other developments in the town including the new Cathedral Quarter and The Mall."
