The Council's park ranger team helps to ensure that Burnleys parks and open spaces are clean and safe places for everyone to enjoy. The team works 365 days per year.
The presence of Rangers in their familiar and distinctive uniform can be a reassuring sight for visitors to the Burnley's parks. Knowing that there is someone there to answer questions and deal with problems encourages visitors to venture out and visit sites they are not familiar with.
The Rangers enforce bylaws and Public Space Protection orders, including issuing fixed penalty notices for littering and dog fouling offences but they are not a security service and will contact the Police for more serious offences.
Park rangers also manage parking and are authorised to issue Penalty Charge Notices for parking offences in parks.
Rangers patrol on foot, using e-bikes and in electric vans.
Patrolling also gives the Rangers the opportunity to keep a protective eye on our local wildlife. Being aware of what is present and where it is located helps us to protect it.
