Curzon Street Town Centre Development, Burnley

The Councils requirement is for a leisure-led mixed use redevelopment of the town centre site. This provides an opportunity for bringing new leisure uses; preferably including a cinema and/or other family orientated leisure facilities and restaurant chains into Burnley town centre, with some additional retail. The Curzon Street Development site (wholly owned by Burnley Borough Council) is located within the town centre at the northern edge of the primary shopping area, between Burnley Knowledge Quarter and the Charter Walk Shopping Centre. Located on the key gateway into the Town Centre, with frontage onto Active Way and Curzon Street, the site extends to 1.5ha and is currently used as a pay and display car park.Nearby retailers along the pedestrianised part of Curzon Street, a major thoroughfare, include Marks & Spencer, Next, Halifax and Primark (occupation scheduled for early 2018 and immediately adjacent the site). Other surrounding uses and retailers include a multi-storey car park, Aldi supermarket, The Range, and Anchor Retail Park. The nearby former open market and old Studio 123 cinema complex above the retained Market Hall along with associated ramp and bridges on Curzon Street and Bankfield are due to be demolished next year, which will significantly improve the visual aspect and townscape at this key location. The site represents a major opportunity to grow Burnley Town Centre with a scheme that will complement the ongoing regeneration of the town. The development of the Curzon Street site will supplement the existing thriving retail and service centre with a wider leisure, cultural and social experience during the day and into the evening that will underpin Burnley as an attractive place to live, work and visit. The site provides an opportunity for a major leisure led development ideally bringing a cinema and/or other family orientated leisure facilities and restaurant chains into the town centre. Alongside additional retail units, improved public realm and car parking provision, the development has the ability to further improve the overall status and attraction of Burnley town centre.
