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.

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.

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.

Garden waste collections are due to start again in Burnley borough after a winter break.

The collections will restart on 27th February for those already on the brown bin service and will be free until a new, chargeable service comes in from 1st May 2017.

The council is introducing a charge for “green” collections in light of funding and subsidy cuts and ever-decreasing budgets.

Information leaflets about changes to Burnley Council’s garden waste collection scheme are being delivered across the borough.

The council is introducing a charge for “green” collections in light of funding and subsidy cuts and ever-decreasing budgets.

“We didn’t take this decision lightly,” said Councillor Lian Pate, the council’s executive member for community services. “However, like many other councils across the country, we can’t continue to offer this non-statutory service without introducing a charge.”

Councillors in Burnley are considering ways to meet the severe financial challenges that lie ahead as they prepare to agree this year’s budget.

Burnley Council is facing making savings of more than £4 million, or 27.5% of the 2017/18 revenue budget, over the next three years as a result of Government funding cuts.

The council’s executive meets on 13th February to discuss several financial reports, outlining the state of the council’s finances and looking ahead, as preparation for setting the 2017/18 budget later this month.

Burnley Council is further strengthening its tough stance on dog fouling and littering.

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.

Now councilors have agreed to team up with a private partner to strengthen its enforcement work further and crackdown even more on environmental crime.
