Marks & Spencer and Groundwork collaborate on plans to give Burnley green space £50,000 makeover

Marks & Spencer and environmental charity Groundwork are working together on plans to transform an area of Burnley into a wildlife garden.

The Burnley project is part of M&S's Plan A campaign and the high street retailer is putting £26,500 into the £50,000 scheme.

The green space project is set to go to consultation early in the new year before work begins shortly after.

Groundwork Pennine Lancashire contracts manager Mark Grimshaw said: "This scheme should be an enormous benefit to local people. It is in a key position between the town centre and the residential areas, and will provide a link between the two."
