Successful business grants bid means extra support for firms

A successful bid for just under £1 million of Government cash means businesses across Burnley, Pendle and Rossendale will be able to access extra support to expand and develop new technologies 

Burnley Council together with Pendle and Rossendale councils and Growth Lancashire are to receive £994,083 from the UK Community Renewal Fund to deliver a business grants programme across the three boroughs.

The funding will be available until June 2022.

Pioneer Place leisure complex gets final approvals for start in New Year

Burnley Council has reiterated its continued support for the proposed multi-million pound Pioneer Place leisure development in the face of the impact of the worldwide Covid pandemic.

At its Full Council meeting last night, the council approved a number of measures to ensure the planned cinema and leisure complex goes ahead. This means that construction on the development will start on site early in the new year.

Warmer homes and lower fuel bills for private tenants

Families living in cold and draughty rented properties across the borough of Burnley can expect warmer homes thanks to a new campaign to help clamp down on errant landlords.

Privately rented homes must meet a minimum energy performance rating of EPC Band E, making it illegal to rent out homes below that unless landlords have a registered exemption.

Landlords caught failing to fulfil their obligations can be fined up to £5,000 per property and per breach.
