Client: South Ribble Borough Council
Designed by South Ribble borough Council this scheme comprised a raised bed with inlaid artwork panels and a large feature tree. Corten steel was used for the corner planters and elements of the tree design which provided a real focal point for the Bamber Bridge project.
Councillor Phil Smith, responsible for the regeneration, leisure and economic development, said:
“The new Bamber Bridge Tree will provide a focal point for all the improvements and the plaques are and opportunity to mark someone’s place in history. It’s a fabulous way of paying tribute to an inspiring teacher or a talented sportsperson or simply recognising individuals who add character to the town.”
Delivering schemes that create a real community focus are always rewarding. The design of this project is excellent and a great way to acknowledge key members of the local community. The artwork was produced by DP Structures, also a Burnley company, who regularly work with us delivering iconic works of art.
