Driver fined for not having private hire licence

A man has been fined after being spotted driving a taxi in Burnley without a private hire licence.

Abdul Majeed, of Albert Street, Brierfield, pleaded guilty driving a private hire vehicle without a current licence, and guilty to using a vehicle without insurance. He was fined £120 and ordered to pay £200 costs and a £30 victim surcharge by Burnley magistrates. He also had eight penalty points put on his driving licence.

Private landlords fined for failing to licence rented property

Two private landlords have been fined more than £700 for failing to properly licence a property in Burnley they rented out.

Burnley Magistrates’ Court was told that Christopher James Davies and Natalie Davies owned the house in Carter Street and had rented it out since December 2015.

The house is in Gannow, a selective licensing area where rented properties must be licensed by Burnley Council. Selective licensing has been introduced into certain areas by the council to help improve the management of private rented properties and improve the surrounding area.

Moves will make Burnley town centre safer

A move to give greater powers to tackle anti-social behaviour in Burnley town centre is set to be discussed by councillors.

A six-week consultation was launched earlier this year as part of proposals to introduce a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) in the centre.

It follows complaints from local businesses, shoppers and other visitors about certain behaviour which was putting off people from coming into the centre.

Burnley Council’s executive will discuss the results of the consultation, and agree the next move, at its meeting on 20th September.

Boundary proposals go on show in Burnley

People are being encouraged to take part in a consultation to help shape the future of Burnley’s Parliamentary boundary.

The 12-week consultation is part of a national review of Parliamentary areas – those which an MP represents rather than borough or other boundaries.

Maps showing the proposals affecting Burnley and surrounding areas, plus further information and booklets, are available to view at Burnley Town Hall reception.

In Lancashire it is proposed to reduce the number of constituencies by two, to 14.
