Civic Architects and design firm Colour: Urban Design have won a competition in Burnley, Lancashire, to redesign a public space around the Neptune Inn

The winning entry proposes terraces that can be used for everything from a rest on the way home to hosting the town’s annual jazz festival. The public space is one of six being offered in design competitions in the area. The client, Elevate East Lancashire, declined to put a price on the commission, which it said did not yet have guaranteed funding.
