Astley Park, Chorley


Back to Case Studies

In July 2021, Altitude was awarded by Chorley Council the new lighting installation contract at Astley Park, which includes 69 lighting bollards, feature lighting to the war memorial and 8 Urbis Shuffle Light Wands. Works also included all trenching, cabling & connections, ducting for CCTV and Wi-Fi and 2 feeder pillars with DNO connections.

The beautiful 43.75-hectare park opened in 1924 and is one of the town's most visited places and has a green flag award. Just a short walk from the town centre and home to the River Chor, there are footpaths to enjoy the woodland, glorious gardens to relax in and a beautiful lake enjoyed by families. Access can be gained from Park Road in Chorley town centre, or through Hallgate, off Chancery Road in Astley Village.

During August 2021, in the weeks leading up to the start date we visited site and liaised with the local businesses, explaining our planned works and discussed how we could mitigate any disruption or health and safety risk concerns they may have. We also put notices of the works in prominent places such as park notice boards, so that the park users were aware of the works in advance.

We were informed that the project was to commence after the G7 Speakers’ Summit, hosted by Chorley MP and Commons Speaker, Sir Lindsay Hoyle on 18th September 2021. Therefore, Altitude commenced works on site on 20th September 2021 and were completed by early November 2021, in time for the annual fireworks display. Our working hours were 09:00-15:00 Monday to Friday to accommodate school children going to and from school across the park. We implemented our “No Excavation Left Open” policy which means excavation works will never be left open overnight, therefore providing a safer environment.

The entire installation was electrically tested in accordance with BS7671.
