Case studies - Burscough Bridge

New tree planting provides shading around public spaces and seating areas, and provides an aesthetic barrier to the busy A59 that bisects the village.

A townscape regeneration project inspired by local myths has created a new heart for the village of Burscough Bridge. Although predominantly involving hard landscape works new tree planting has been utilised to provide shading around public spaces and seating areas, improve the attractiveness of the townscape character and to provide an aesthetic barrier to the busy A59 that bisects the village.
