Volunteer Steve’s “impressive achievement”


One of the first items of business when councillors met in Burnley Town Hall this week was for the Mayor to award an official certificate of recognition to Mr Steven Pyecroft,

Steven has volunteered in Scott Park for the last three years. He began repairing and repainting benches in Scott Park together with other benches on Manchester Road and around Rosehill and some in Cliviger. 

Liberata creates new jobs in Burnley

Burnley Council’s strategic partnership with Liberata is helping create new jobs, councillors will be told.

The council has just started its third year of its partnership with Liberata with the announcement that the private contractor is ahead of schedule in locating new jobs to the borough, with a further eight posts having been recently created to support the delivery of contracts with other local authorities.

Councillors to consider and set annual budget and Council Tax

Reports have been published setting out proposals for how Burnley Council will meet its financial challenges over the next year, whilst continuing to deliver priority services.

The papers also look ahead over the years to 2022, showing how Burnley Council continues to face shrinking budgets, and setting out a broad approach to balancing the books.

Factors affecting the budget include a 2 per cent pay increase for local council workers, which is being agreed nationally and which Burnley Council has to implement.

Annual Remembrance Sunday commemoration in Burnley

Arrangements have been made for the annual service of remembrance to be held at the Peace Garden, Croft Street, Burnley, on Sunday, 12th November.

The service will start shortly before 11am and will be conducted by the Bishop of Burnley, Reverend Philip North CMP, Father Roger Parker, Chaplain to the Royal British Legion, and Father Peter Hopkinson of St Mary’s of Assumption.

Members of the public attending are asked to be at the Peace Garden no later than 10.45am.

Residents asked for their views on council services

Burnley Council has launched its annual residents’ survey to gauge people’s priorities and help shape its services.

The survey, which is open to anyone living in the borough, covers a number of issues including satisfaction levels about services, questions about Thompson Park and the customer service the council provides, anti-social behavior issues, and the three best and worst things about Burnley.

Partnership approach is a success

Burnley councillors have been given an update on the progress of a strategic partnership between the council and private contractor Liberata.

The company was brought in to take over the running of some services from the council. These included customer services, revenue and benefits, and environmental health.

The partnership was part of Burnley Council’s strategic planning around maintaining essential public services while meeting ever-increasing financial challenges.

Red Ensign being flown over Burnley to honour Merchant Navy

The Red Ensign flag will be flown over Burnley Town Hall as part of a national campaign to honour the Merchant Navy.

Burnley Council has once again agreed to take part in the campaign to raise awareness of the role the Merchant Navy has played, and continues to play, in bringing essential goods to Britain.

This Sunday (3rd September) is Red Ensign Day and organisations across the country have been asked to mark it in their own way. Because it falls on a Sunday the flag will be raised over the town hall on Friday (1st Sept) and remain there over the weekend.
