Covid vaccination site opens in Burnley town centre

Hundreds of people aged 65 and over and those who are clinically vulnerable are being invited to book a coronavirus vaccination at a new NHS larger scale vaccination centre in Burnley town centre.

Working together to deliver a successful Census 2021

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) – which runs Census 2021 – is working with Burnley Council to deliver a successful census and help local services to fully meet future needs.

Understanding the needs of the nation helps everyone from central government to local organisations, such as councils and health authorities, plan and fund public services across England and Wales. Census outputs inform where public funding is spent on services like transport, education and health – on cycle routes, schools and dental surgeries.

Among the proposals is an extra £50,000 for the streetscene unit to be spent on tackling environmental issues such as dog fouling and flytipping.
