News for residents

Residents in Burnley borough with unwanted or unused brown wheelie bins, used to collect garden waste, are being given the chance to have them taken off their hands.

The council is organising a round-up of unwanted brown bins which will take place on Monday 18th December. Residents should request their bin to be collected by visiting www.burnley.gov.uk/gardenwasteand following the instructions. They should leave their bin out where they usually leave their recycling containers, on collection day from 6.30am.

On Wednesday 6th and Thursday 7th December, Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service and Burnley Council served a series of legal notices on the Keirby Hotel, Burnley (which has recently traded as the Crown Hotel).

These orders related to concerns about health and safety, and specifically about fire safety.

Because of these orders, people living and staying at the hotel needed to move out. Burnley Council has arranged short-term and temporary accommodation where appropriate, and has provided advice to the people who were living at the hotel.

Burnley Council has introduced a “pay by phone parking” service for motorists on its town centre car parks.

Drivers who download an app to their smartphone can buy a parking ticket, and even extend the time allowed on the ticket remotely or pay by text under the new scheme. There is no need to display a parking ticket as parking enforcement officers are made aware via handheld computer.

Burnley Council’s garden waste collections have gone into “hibernation” as usual over the winter period.

The last collection of 2017 took place on Monday (27th November) and will re-start again in February 2018.

The garden waste collections have always taken a break over winter when there is less green waste to collect and all but those with the greenest fingers tend to take a break from gardening duties.

Burnley FC stars swapped their claret and blue for claret and white to show their support for a national campaign against domestic violence.

Burnley Football Club is, once again, supporting the White Ribbon campaign to encourage men to pledge never to commit, condone or remain silent about violence against women.

Burnley is a designated White Ribbon Town, and various organisations have pledged their support in the fight against domestic violence.

The Lancashire flag - a red rose on a bright yellow background - is flying over Burnley Town Hall to mark Lancashire Day.

The Mayor of Burnley Cllr Howard Baker said: "We know there are a lot of people in Burnley who are proud to call themselves Lancastrians. Lancashire is a county that boasts everything from industrial heritage, to some of the most beautiful countryside in Britain, to cutting edge technology. I think it’s worth remembering that, not just on Lancashire Day but every day.”

More than 150 people attended a drop-in session in Padiham as part of a series of events aimed at highlighting the work being done to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour in the town.

Residents turned out, despite the wind and rain, to raise concerns, issues and ideas with representatives from a range of organisations, including Burnley Council, Lancashire Police, Calico, Burnley Leisure and other organisations that work with young people, Burnley FC in the Community, and representatives from the voluntary sector.

New gym equipment is set to be installed at Padiham Leisure Centre before the end of the year, making sure gym members have access to the latest training technology available.

The equipment is on order and due to be installed next month (December).

The work also includes upgrading the air conditioning, some general decoration and the addition of a group cycling facility at the site.

Get into the festive spirit and enjoy browsing through handmade goods and gifts at Towneley Hall’s craft fair next weekend.

Residents and visitors of all ages are welcome to come along on Sunday, 26th November, to what is set to be the best craft fair in Burnley.

The fair will sparkle with many craft items to buy as Christmas gifts for those special people in your life.

A wide choice of fabric, knitted and wooden products will be on offer along with a variety of jewellery, Christmas crackers, painted cards and mince pies, of course.

Another piece of life-saving equipment has been installed in Burnley town centre.

Burnley Council has been working with North West Ambulance Service (NWAS) to install defibrillator units in public places across the town.

The latest unit has been installed outside McDonald’s in St James’ Street and is available for use in an emergency if someone suffers a heart attack. It was installed as part of the major refurbishment of the town centre which is almost completed.
