Plans are in place to resurface the driveway and paths around the Walled Garden in Worden Park.

South Ribble Council’s neighbourhood services has put forward a listed building consent application to the planning committee for the work.

The council’s cabinet member for neighbourhoods and streetscene, Coun Peter Mullineaux, said: “Since the refurbishment of the Walled Garden last summer, more people than ever are using the paths around the park.

“And therefore, some resurfacing is needed to maintain access to this part of the park.

“If the work is given the go-ahead, we will have the opportunity to continue to improve the park and ensure that access is suitable for all the different visitors that travel far and wide to see our award-winning park every year.”

The driveway is currently Tarmac and will be replaced with a like-for-like surface, while the areas around the cottage and garden will be gravel and grass.

If given the go-ahead, work will be carried out at the same time as the approved job to finish off the surfacing around the Arts and Crafts Centre courtyards. It will all be done in the summer, but not before the Leyland Festival.

Another scheme which has already been signed off is for an extension to the main car park.

The cabinet committee is this week set to vote on proposals to agree a tender for the job, costing £96,497.
