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 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.

Burnley Council has extended the deadline for residents to take advantage of an “early bird” discount for the borough’s new chargeable garden waste collection service.

The deadline for benefitting from the discount has been extended to 5pm on 31st March. It was originally due to run out on Thursday (16th March).

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.

Residents and business owners in Burnley borough planning to apply for financial support to make their property more resilient to flooding have until the end of the month to put in applications.

Burnley Council has been running a flood resilience grant scheme since floods affected parts of the borough on Boxing Day 2015. Under the scheme, properties that were flooded as a result of Storm Eva may be entitled to grants of up to £5,000, provided as part of government support. 

The deadline for applications is 31st March.

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.

Residents joined senior councillors in pledging their support for efforts by Burnley Council to keep the town centre clean and tidy.

It comes a month before new, tougher enforcement action is introduced that will see £75 fines issued to those that drop litter or fail to clean up after their dogs.

Members of the public joined council leader Mark Townsend and other councillors in signing a “keep it tidy” pledge and support stronger action against those that spoil our borough.

Residents are being urged not to miss out on an “early bird” discount when it comes to signing up for Burnley Council’s chargeable garden waste collection service.

The deadline for benefitting from the discount runs out on Thursday 16th March.

Sign up by then 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.

The cost covers 20 collections a year, with the usual break over winter.

An artefact to represent Burnley in a county-wide competition has been decided after a public vote.

A Pilkington pot, currently on show at Towneley Hall, has been picked by the people of Burnley as an item to represent the area in the ‘History of Lancashire in 70 Objects’ project.

Online followers and visitors of the historic hall have been casting their vote since January to choose their favourite object from a shortlist of three.

The next stage of a national review that could change the shape of Burnley’s Parliamentary boundary has started.

Last year people were invited to take part in a public consultation as part of the national review of Parliamentary areas – those which an MP represents rather than borough or other boundaries.

There were almost 20,000 responses to that consultation across the country. The next stage of the 2018 Review is the publication of all those representations so that others may comment on them.

Barnfield Investment Properties, in partnership with Burnley Council, is delighted to announce that Burnley is delivering the first official government backed Starter Homes Scheme in the UK.
