The Burnley Town Centre and Canalside Masterplan was adopted by the Council on 28 November 2018. The Masterplan provides a vision for future development and the strategic context to give funders, landowners and private investors’ the confidence to invest. It will help guide development in and around Burnley town centre over the next decade.
The Masterplan is a non-statutory document which supports both Burnley's Local Plan and the 2016 Burnley Town Centre Strategy. Whilst it has limited weight as planning policy, it will nevertheless be a material consideration in the consideration of relevant applications.
