A council manager from Burnley has spoken at a national conference to highlight bee-friendly practice in the borough.

It was estimated by the council that the meadow management in Burnley has made an annual saving of £58,000 with the figure expected to increase.

Burnley Council will launch the next stage in its fight to clean up streets across Burnley borough on Monday (April 10th).

The authority is teaming up with private contractor Kingdom Environmental Enforcement Services to introduce street patrols to help tackle littering and dog fouling, the two main concerns raised by residents when asked about the issues that affect them.

The council takes a zero tolerance approach to the problems and is already one of the best performing local authorities in the country when it comes to prosecuting fly-tippers.

Time is running out for people across Burnley borough to make sure they are eligible to vote in the Lancashire County Council election and Directly Elected Mayor referendum on 4th May.

In order to have your say you must be registered to vote. Poll cards are currently being delivered across the borough – if you receive one you are registered to vote.

However, if you don’t, or you’re not sure if you are registered, the deadline to do so is Thursday 13th April.

A special meeting of the full Burnley Council has approved the latest version of the draft Local Plan – the Proposed Submission Plan – following a two-hour debate.

There will now be a six-week formal consultation period for final representations. This will run from and including Wednesday 12th April up to and including Friday 26th May.

Burnley Council’s executive has agreed to recommend that the latest version of the draft Local Plan – the Proposed Submission Plan - be approved by full council when it meets next week. 

Local authorities are required by legislation to prepare a local plan to set the local planning framework for their area.  Burnley’s Local Plan will cover the whole borough and looks ahead to 2032.  The plan will be used to guide decisions on planning applications and areas where investment should be prioritised.  It allocates sites that are needed to accommodate new houses and businesses.

Creating a new masterplan for the future regeneration of Burnley town centre and Weavers’ Triangle will help attract further funding and investment, councilors will be told next week.

Burnley Council’s executive, which meets on 27th March, is recommended to appoint experts to draw up a comprehensive blueprint for the continued development of the town centre and adjoining areas.

Councillors in Burnley are set to launch a community clean-up campaign across the borough.

Burnley Council’s executive is recommended to approve the programme of “targeted” activities when it meets on 27th March.

The aim is to tackle anti-social behavior and raise awareness about the impact of flytipping and other environmental crime.

The campaign will complement separate work being carried out by the council’s new private partner Kingdom Environmental Services which is introducing enforcement patrols to tackle littering and dog fouling from 10th April.

Burnley Council has decided to give local people more time to consider the latest version of the Local Plan.

The ‘Proposed Submission Plan’ has just been published.

It will now be discussed for the first time by Burnley councillors at an Executive meeting on Monday 20th March, at 6.30 pm.

This date replaces the meeting previously announced, which was to have been on Thursday 16th March.
