Summer garden party coming to Burnley town centre

Last year’s inaugural event was such a success organisers have decided to hold another Summer Garden Party in Burnley town centre - and everyone is invited.

The event will see the town centre transformed with music, dance, food, drink and craft stalls, gardening workshops, Wizard of Oz themed costume characters/street theatre, sand sculpture workshops, circus skills workshop, giant panda meet and greet, giant outdoor games and much, much more for all ages to enjoy.

Extra electric vehicle charging points set to be installed

A series of additional electric vehicles charging points are set to be installed in Burnley borough.

Burnley Council and five other local authorities across Lancashire submitted a successful bid for Government funding that could see four rapid charging points installed in each area.

Potential sites on council-owned car parks have been identified and are currently being evaluated by Electricity North West.

Task force groups set up to find innovative ways of tackling environmental issues

Burnley Council is set to establish two cross-party task force groups to investigate how the authority can better tackle dog fouling and climate change.

Part of the groups’ work will be to investigate best practice elsewhere in the country as well as coming up with innovative ideas of their own.

The task forces were announced in a report that will go to a meeting of the full council on 10th July.

They are among initiatives announced by the new administration which came in after the local elections in May and reflect the new cross-party approach being taken.

Breathing new life into long-term empty houses

A further 80 long-term vacant and run-down properties across the borough are set to have new life put back into them this year thanks to Burnley Council’s empty homes programme.

The programme sees properties that have been left empty for many years and which often attract anti-social behaviour acquired by the council, renovated and then sold on with the proceeds being put back into the scheme to tackle more empty homes.
