wELCOME To Hollins Cross Farm

The area designated by Burnley Borough Council as a Prime Greenfield site suitable for development has a varied topography being a combination of rich arable and grazing land adjoining a lush naturally formed wetland with various Water Courses, Streams, Rising underground springs and an idyllic naturally formed Pond.

The area contains many trees, bushes and hedgerows, that are home to many indigenous and area specific species of plants and insects. It is bordered by dense areas of forest and pocketed with areas of natural man made copse plantations instigated by the Forest of Burnley Project

The designated area of Hollins Cross Farm is home to Bats, Badgers, Foxes, Rabbits, Deer, various species of Owl, Kestrels, Sparrow Hawk, Merlin and other protected Birds of Prey are all regularly seen in the field, by residents of Glen View Road, Woodplumpton Farm, Wilkie Avenue, Fairways Drive and Hollins Cross Farm. More so recently there are nesting pairs of curlews adjacent to the site, these being classed as a protected species




This is how to plan a housing
development of the future
Blackpool and Manchester

Burnley Council intend to build 2483 houses with no plans for new primary schools, no plans for new Doctors Surgeries, no plans for new Dentists, no plans for new Hospital Upgrades, no plans for new infrastructure and no plans for new fast transport links to Manchester.

In Burnley there are 2800 empty houses that the Council could regenerate and provide sustainable social housing.
Refurbishment of these properties could provide work for local tradesmen, properties could be purchased by young couples in "Let with an option to Buy" schemes organised by the council and local financiers.


Building new houses on GreenField Sites will cause Urban Sprawl and a massive
Town Center housing blight.
