Burnley Council’s executive has agreed to recommend that the latest version of the draft Local Plan – the Proposed Submission Plan - be approved by full council when it meets next week. 

Local authorities are required by legislation to prepare a local plan to set the local planning framework for their area.  Burnley’s Local Plan will cover the whole borough and looks ahead to 2032.  The plan will be used to guide decisions on planning applications and areas where investment should be prioritised.  It allocates sites that are needed to accommodate new houses and businesses.

Residents and businesses are being asked their views on a draft management plan aimed at helping protect and enhance the special interest of Padiham conservation area.

The Padiham Conservation Area Management Plan outlines the measures for preservation and enhancement of the area for the period 2017 to 2027.  The involvement of the local community in preparing the management plan is an essential part of the process and the council is holding a public consultation on the draft plan between 27th March - 28th April. 

An Edwardian vase from Towneley Hall, Burnley, has been chosen to represent the history of Lancashire.  

A beautiful Pilkington pot has been picked by judges as one of the artefacts for the History of Lancashire in 70 objects project.

Designed by Walter Crane in 1908, the vase will represent the area and along with other 69 other items will be featured in the Lancashire Life magazine later this year.

The car park and a picnic area in Towneley Park, Burnley, will be closed for three days this week while improvement works take place.

Barwise car park and picnic site will be closed from 7am Wednesday 22nd March due to a dozen trees being removed as part of a wider project to improve the Barwise area at Towneley Park.

The car park will re-open as normal on Saturday, 25th April.

The results of a review of Burnley Leisure will be reported to councilors next week.

The scrutiny review found the leisure trust offers impressive, modern and innovative facilities that are popular and well used. It also highlighted the need to continue to market and promote Burnley Leisure services to attract more members, particularly in light of the increased challenge from private gyms.

The scrutiny report will be considered by Burnley Council’s executive on 27th March.

Councillors in Burnley are set to launch a community clean-up campaign across the borough.

Burnley Council’s executive is recommended to approve the programme of “targeted” activities when it meets on 27th March.

The aim is to tackle anti-social behavior and raise awareness about the impact of flytipping and other environmental crime.

The campaign will complement separate work being carried out by the council’s new private partner Kingdom Environmental Services which is introducing enforcement patrols to tackle littering and dog fouling from 10th April.

Burnley Council has agreed to go ahead with a 10-year partnership with Barnfield Investment Properties to boost the borough’s housing market.

The new joint venture is a key part of the council’s housing strategy, said a report to the council’s executive.

Under the agreement the council will provide its own land, where appropriate, and the developer will fund and build houses. Any profits, over a set limit, would be divided between the council and the company.

Burnley Council has extended the deadline for residents to take advantage of an “early bird” discount for the borough’s new chargeable garden waste collection service.

The deadline for benefitting from the discount has been extended to 5pm on 31st March. It was originally due to run out on Thursday (16th March).

Sign up by the end of this month and residents who want to continue with fortnightly garden waste collections, after the chargeable service comes in from 1st May, will pay £25 rather than £30.
