Working together has helped bring important investment into Burnley: working with Barnfield Developments to create the On The Banks area; opened up direct rail link to Manchester;  worked with Safran to open up the major aerospace supplier village Innovation Drive in the North of town; developed other exciting new employment sites, such as at Burnley Bridge and Vision Park; and much much more.

Many of these positive developments result from the close working between local businesses and Burnley Council which shapes the Burnley Bondholder network - for updates from Bondholders and news and information about local companies, go to
