Annual Holocaust memorial service

Arrangements have been made for the annual Holocaust memorial service to be held at the Peace Garden, Croft Street, Burnley starting at 1pm on Sunday 30th January 2022.

The service will commemorate and honour all the victims of the Holocaust and assert a commitment to oppose racism, anti-Semitism, victimisation and genocide.

The service, which will be attended by the Mayor and Mayoress of Burnley Councillor Mark and Mrs Kerry Townsend, will be a multi-faith service.

Wreaths of remembrance may be laid after the service.

Work to start on multi-million pound leisure complex in Burnley

Work is set to start later this month (Monday 24th) on the much-anticipated multi-million pound Pioneer Place leisure complex that will transform part of Burnley town centre.

The £23 million scheme, which will include a seven-screen cinema and five retail and leisure units plus a 226-space car park, is set to be completed in late summer 2023 and opened in the autumn of that year.

Hospital agreement would boost community recreation ground

Part of a Burnley recreation ground could be set aside for use as a temporary car park for hospital staff to allow the development of an extra care unit at Burnley General Hospital.

Rental income generated from the arrangement would be used to fund improvements at Rakehead recreation ground which would be of long-term benefit to the local community.

East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust is proposing to develop an extra care facility on an area of the hospital which is currently a 200-space car park for nurses and medical staff.

Selective licensing schemes in Burnley set to continue

Two schemes aimed at improving housing in parts of Burnley are set to be continued for a further five years.

Burnley Council’s executive is recommended to approve the extension of selective licensing areas covering around 2,000 houses in the Leyland Road, and Burnley Wood and Healey Wood areas when it meets later this month.

If agreed by the executive, the scheme would have to be submitted to the Secretary of State for final approval.

It follows an 11-week consultation involving residents, private landlords, managing agents and other interested parties.
