The Super Slow Way is a cultural development programme that covers 20 miles of the Leeds & Liverpool Canal corridor stretching through East Lancashire from Blackburn in the west, through Hyndburn and Burnley, and ending in Pendle in the east.
They have engaged BDP (internationally renowned Landscape Architects) to do this piece of work and would like to engage with the communities closest to the canal to make sure that their needs and views are incorporated in the designs.
As such, they are keen to get in contact with community groups in the Higher Audley, Daisyfield and Intack areas in order that they are adequately consulted and represented through this process.
If you operate in one of these neighbourhoods and would like to have your say, please get in touch with Vladimir Pejcinovic.
