Residents and community leaders have celebrated the opening of their new play area in Towneley Park.

Around £20,000 was spent on the new facility in the Barwise picnic area, which was formally opened by Councillor John Harbour and Chair of Friends of Towneley Park Maureen Frankland.

Pupils from Springfield Primary School were also on hand to help cut the ribbon and have a go on the new playground, which includes a log cabin, log maze climber, balance beams, hanging log steps and swings. 

As well as the equipment new picnic tables and benches were also installed.

Plans to create an event car park close to Towneley Hall have been given the green light.

Extra parking spaces will be created on a field next to the existing hall car park. They will be used to create additional capacity when there are events taking place at Towneley. The car park will have a reinforced grass and plastic grid surface to minimise impact on the visual appearance of the park.

Burnley’s brilliant parks are in line for another national award.

Burnley Council’s parks team has been nominated for the best service team of the year (parks, grounds and horticultural service) in the APSE Service Awards 2017.

The winners will be announced at a ceremony in Oxford on 7th September. The APSE awards attracted more than 300 submissions for over 100 organisations across the country.

The council’s innovative approach to managing Burnley’s parks and open areas caught the judges’ eyes.

Burnley has been declared a property hotspot after a significant rise in sales, according to a new report from Lloyds Bank, using Land Registry figures.

Burnley was joint seventh in England and Wales with a 10 per cent rise in house sales. In comparison, 82 per cent of towns included in the survey saw house sales fall between 2015 and 2016.

This is reflected in increased confidence in the area from housebuilders, with a wide range of quality housing schemes taking shape across the borough on several previously developed (brownfield) sites.
