Burnley businesses called upon to support school and college leavers

It’s been a difficult past 15 months for the young people of Burnley, particularly those who are approaching the end of their time at school and college and have had to adapt to no formal exams and reduced social contact.

This is one of the reasons why the businesses across the borough of Burnley have been called upon to support school and college leavers with the next step of their journey.

Public consultation set to help decide future of selective licensing schemes

Residents and landlords are set to be consulted on whether to continue selective licensing schemes in two areas of Burnley.

Selective licensing schemes in Burnley Wood and Healey Wood, and the Leyland Road area of the town, are due to come to an end in November.

A report to Burnley Council’s executive recommends public consultation as part of evidence gathering before a final decision is made at the end of the year on whether the schemes should be extended a further five years.

Council set to continue support for Burnley Together community hub

Burnley Council is set to pledge to continue its support for Burnley Together community hub over the next two years.

The council’s executive is recommended to approve continued funding for the organisation which was set up to help support local families through the Covid pandemic.

Burnley Together, which brings together partners from the public, private and voluntary sectors, has proved so successful that it will continue to operate after the pandemic ends.

More empty homes to be brought back to life

Burnley Council is set to bring another group of long-term vacant houses back into use through its empty homes programme.

The council’s executive is recommended to agree the compulsory purchase of a further 15 properties in the borough.

If agreed, the houses will be acquired for re-sale and, once renovated, reoccupied with the proceeds being re-invested back into buying and refurbishing further properties.

Council set to update policy on tackling ASB

Burnley Council is committed to working with partners such as the police and other organisations to help reduce crime and tackle anti-social behaviour (ASB) to help improve the quality of life for local residents.

The council’s executive is set to approve an updated ASB policy as part of this commitment when it meets on 14th July.

The policy outlines the council’s approach to how it will deal and support our communities and partner agencies in dealing with ASB.

Levelling Up funding bid to boost Burnley

Burnley Council and Burnley’s MP, Antony Higginbotham, are set to jointly submit a significant bid to the Government’s Levelling Up Fund.

The bid will build on other schemes, which have been delivered in the town centre, such as the Town Centre public realm refurbishment, Lower St James’s Street Heritage Action Zone and the Pioneer Place Development, which is due to start on site in July this year.

The bid, if successful, will see further key projects within the Town Centre and Canalside Masterplan be delivered before 2024.

A PACKAGE of enhanced support – including surge testing and increased vaccinations – is coming to Lancashire as cases of Covid-19 continue to rise.

The county is getting enhanced support from central government to ramp up testing and offering the vaccine in more convenient locations in coronavirus hotspots.

From today, everyone over 25 is eligible to receive their first Covid jab.

Cases are rising rapidly in parts of Lancashire – driven by the Delta variant – mainly in the East but spreading in Central Lancashire and other parts of the county.
