A bold and ambitious vision for Burnley’s future is set out in the updated annual Strategic Plan which will be considered by councilors this month.

The Plan drawn up by the council sets out how it will deliver services over the next three years in the face of massive funding cuts, and the priorities for shaping the future of the borough.

It sits alongside the council’s budget-setting process and its financial plans for the coming years and forms an over-view of it will adapt to the changes ahead.

The document will be discussed by Burnley Council’s executive on the 13th February before going to the full council.

The plan sets out the council’s vision based around four themes – People, Places, Prosperity and Performance. Its overall aims are to make the borough a place of choice; where businesses want to invest because of its skilled workforce and its competitive, modern economy; where people want to live because of its clean and safe neighbourhoods and because of its reputation as a centre of educational excellence and its beautiful parks and wild countryside.

Councillor Mark Townsend, executive member for resources and performance management, said: “This is a deliberately ambitious and challenging vision for Burnley’s future. We’re setting our sights high. In light of the pace of positive change and development in our borough, there’s no reason why we can’t make this a reality.

“The council will remain focused on what really matters and we will continue to find innovative ways of funding our, and our residents’, priorities.

“The council will work with residents, businesses, community groups and private and voluntary organisations, in fact anyone who wants a better Burnley, to bring this vision to life.”
