Three Sisters Recreation Area
An exciting opportunity to develop a Visitor Centre at the Three Sisters Recreation Area in Wigan is the latest Bradshaw Gass & Hope LLP bid success.
The project is part of Wigan Leisure and Culture Trust's programme to develop recreational and leisure facilities within the Borough that will provide social, environmental and economic benefit to the local population. It follows on from recent successes with Wigan History Shop and the Haigh Hall Stables Development the provided new social interaction facilities for the residents of Wigan Borough, both schemes delivered successfully by Bradshaw Gass & Hope LLP.
At the Three Sisters Recreation Area a feasibility study is to be carried out to explore a number of alternative opportunities that will look at conversion of the existing warden's offices, extension to these offices and the provision of a new build visitor education facility.
Bradshaw Gass & Hope LLP's bid looked at the historical and social context of the Three Sisters Recreation Area. It understood the need to engage with the local stakeholder groups, including the Friends of Three Sisters, and to develop proposals that recognise Three Sisters position within the wider context of the Greenheart Regional Park programme.
The project is seeking funding through the Veolia Cre8 initiative set up by the Veolia Environmental Trust which was established in 1997 under the Landfill Communities Fund (LCF). Bradshaw Gass & Hope LLP's recent experience in developing projects that have sought or used similar funding will be of direct benefit to the development of the Three Sisters proposals.
Bradshaw Gass & Hope LLP are looking forward to working with Wigan Leisure & Culture Trust and all other stakeholders who will be involved with the development of this project.
