Chance for a natter with the council leader

Burnley Council leader Councillor Charlie Briggs is holding the latest in a series of “out and about” surgeries so that local people can raise issues and questions with him directly.

Coun. Briggs will be in Curzon Street, Burnley (between M&S and Next) on Saturday 8th Feb between 10.30am and 12.30pm, and at Tesco supermarket, Padiham, on Thursday 13th Feb 4.30pm to 6.30pm.

Just drop by – there's no need to make an appointment.

Arrangements for annual Holocaust memorial service in Burnley

Residents urged to take pride in their communities

A leading Burnley councillor has urged residents across the borough to take more pride in their communities in 2020.

Councillor Cosima Towneley said Burnley Council could only effectively tackle the problem of flytipping with the help and support of local people.

“The council does what it can to keep our communities clean and tidy but it’s fighting a never-ending battle to try and keep our streets free of flytipping and the only way we can win that battle is with the help of residents," she said.

Council pledges to tackle dog fouling problems

Burnley Council has pledged to make tackling dog fouling in the borough a top priority in 2020.

A cross-party working group, set up by the new council administration to investigate the issue and find ways of reducing the problem that residents consistently highlight as among their top priorities, has reported its recommendations back to the full council.

One of the working group’s first recommendations has already been adopted by the council.

Burnley residents encouraged to recycle this Christmas

Burnley Council is urging residents to make it a cracker of a Christmas when it comes to recycling.

With Christmas just around the corner it’s more important than ever for people to start thinking about recycling over the festive period. By doing this people can help protect the environment and cut down on the amount of waste going into their general household waste bin, preventing it from filling up too quickly.

New improved white recycling sacks are on their way

New, improved white sacks for recycling paper and card are on their way to thousands of homes across Burnley borough.

The new sacks are being introduced as part of wider improvements to the way Burnley Council collects recyclable materials from homes in the borough.

In October the council introduced new ways of collecting recycling – with around half the borough moving to a wheelie bin system and the other half continuing with a blue box (for glass, cans and plastic) and white sack (paper and card) service.
