Following many requests, we are happy to share the plan we submitted to Blackburn with Darwen Council for the development and management of the facilities at Blacksnape playing fields.
The document was submitted in this link and marked 68/100 against the published criteria. We don’t know how that mark was arrived at nor what the other proposals received by the council contained, nor how that has been marked.
We’d like to thank everyone in Darwen who contributed time, energy and ideas to this plan and can only apologise at the lack of feedback on why your efforts were unsuccessful. We will soon be announcing some exciting news that we think will guarantee the future of Darwen Rangers, despite the failure to secure Blacksnape as a facility for young Darwen footballers.
