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.

Burnley Council has agreed to go ahead with a 10-year partnership with Barnfield Investment Properties to boost the borough’s housing market.

The new joint venture is a key part of the council’s housing strategy, said a report to the council’s executive.

Under the agreement the council will provide its own land, where appropriate, and the developer will fund and build houses. Any profits, over a set limit, would be divided between the council and the company.

Sign up by the end of this month and residents who want to continue with fortnightly garden waste collections, after the chargeable service comes in from 1st May, will pay £25 rather than £30.
