A war memorial, dedicated to the Accrington Pals, is due to be revamped at a cost of up to £49,000.
It is hoped the memorial at Oakhill Park can be cleaned, pointed and furnished with new slate name plaques and a stone flagged area if the scheme goes ahead.
There are also plans to rebuild the planter walls if listed building consent for the memorial, on Manchester Road, is granted to Hyndburn Council.
Work to the Grade II listed war memorial could begin in the next few months if planners agree to the scheme.
The works are expected to cost £14,000 running up a bigger bill of up to £49,300 if all the slate name plaques need replacing.
Hyndburn Council leader Miles Parkinson said the war memorial is scheme has been planned with the Accrington Pals Centenary Commemorations Group.
He said: “There are currently no firm proposals agreed for works to the Cenotaph and surrounding areas or any budget approved for any works. However, in conjunction with the Accrington Pals Centenary Commemorations Group we have worked up a scheme and have submitted a planning application for Listed Building Consent for the cleaning, re-pointing, new paved area, re-building of planter stone retaining walls and possible renewal of some of the slate name plaques.
“We have an initial budget estimate for the majority of the works of £14,600 without replacing the slate name plaques, this will increase potentially by a further £49,300 if all the slate name plaques require replacing.”
The memorial is the largest in the borough and was built to remember those who died in World War One and subsequent wars. It features the words: ‘Let us remember those who in their lives fought and died for us’.
