WORSTHORNE WITH HURSTWOOD PARISH COUNCIL
We have been asked by Worsthorne with Hurstwood Parish Council to consider increasing the number of councillors on the parish council from seven to nine. The request was made because the parish council wishes to have fair representation within the parish and to allow it to take on more responsibility and events.
A meeting of the full Burnley Council recommended that a community governance review be carried out as per the timetable below.
Following publication of the draft recommendation to increase the number of councillors on Worsthorne with Hurstwood Parish Council from seven to nine, one response was received as follows:
One borough councillor – no objections to make
Therefore the final recommendation for approval at the meeting of Burnley Council on 19th July 2023 is to increase the number of councillors on Worsthorne with Hurstwood Parish Council from seven to nine with effect from the next scheduled elections in May 2024.
