Council sets out financial plans for the future

Reports have been published setting out proposals for how Burnley Council will meet its financial challenges over the coming years, whilst continuing to deliver high-quality services.

The papers also look ahead over the years to 2024, showing how Burnley Council continues to face shrinking budgets, and setting out a broad approach to balancing the books.

A range of detailed savings are being made across all the service units in the council. Most of these have been programmed in for some time, and result from ongoing changes to the way that services are delivered.

Strategic Plan sets out bold vision for the borough

A bold and ambitious vision for Burnley’s future is set out in the council’s Strategic Plan which will be considered by councillors this month.

The plan drawn up by the council sets out how it will deliver services over the next three years in the face of massive funding cuts, and the priorities for shaping the future of the borough.

It sits alongside the council’s budget-setting process and its financial plans for the coming years and forms an over-view of how it will adapt to the changes ahead.

Successful grant application will fund action against rogue landlords

A successful bid by Burnley Council for extra Government funding will help pay for more action to tackle rogue landlords in the borough.

The council will receive £62,294 which will be used to enable housing staff to carry out a programme of more targeted enforcement and other work.

Councillor John Harbour, the council’s executive member for housing and environment, said: “We’re very pleased that we will receive the full amount of grant that we applied for. This money will help improve conditions for residents in our borough.

Council leader thanks local postmen and women for delivering a first class Christmas

Burnley Council leader Mark Townsend visited the town’s sorting office to see first-hand the operation of delivering Christmas post and to pass on early season’s greetings to its dedicated, hardworking staff.

Councillor Townsend was shown around the office by delivery office manager Simon Figg and was introduced to the postmen and women who will be pulling out all the stops to sort and deliver mail in the busy Christmas period.

“Together an Active Burnley” to make residents healthier

A strategy which sets out a five-year vision to increase physical activity has been approved by Burnley councillors.

Burnley Council’s executive was told that more than 40% of adults in the borough are not sufficiently active which contributes to two-thirds of adults being classed as overweight or obese. Almost one-in-four children in Pennine Lancashire are classed as obese when they reach secondary school age.

The executive approved the Burnley Physical Activity and Sport Strategy 2018-23 when it met last night (11th December).
