Burnley shortlisted for national ‘driving growth’ award

Council’s work to support established firms and attract new employers to borough recognised

Burnley Council has been recognised for its partnership work with business to develop economic growth in the area.

The shortlist for the national Local Government Chronicle Awards has just been announced, and Burnley has taken a place in the ‘Driving Growth’ category.

Latest life-saving equipment installed in Burnley centre

Another piece of life-saving equipment has been installed in Burnley town centre.

Burnley Council has been working with North West Ambulance Service (NWAS) to install defibrillator units in public places across the town.

The briefcase-sized defibrillators are available in Burnley Town Hall, Burnley Market Hall, the Mechanics Theatre, Towneley Hall and Contact Burnley.

Asbestos work completed as refurbishment continues at Padiham Town Hall

Work to remove asbestos from Padiham Town Hall as part of a wider scheme to repair the historic building following last year’s floods has been completed.

The Boxing Day floods caused massive damage to the Grade II listed landmark as well as to businesses and homes across the town.

The town hall has been closed since the flooding which saw the building inundated with water from the neighbouring River Calder up to the height of the basement ceiling.

Plan to bring empty homes back to life

Councillors are set to agree a series of measures to bring long-term empty properties across Burnley and Padiham back into use.

As part of its Empty Homes Programme, Burnley Council’s executive, which meets on 1st November, is being asked to approve compulsory purchase orders (CPOs) on nine properties at various addresses in Burnley. The purchases will result in houses which have been empty for a number of years bought, refurbished and then put back on the open market. The money raised is put back into the programme to fund further purchases.
