House improvement scheme gets underway

Release date: 
Tuesday, 7 August, 2018

As part of a wider commitment to improving the local housing stock, Burnley Council is carrying out improvement work in one of the borough’s selective licensing areas.

Improvements are being carried out in the Ingham Street and Lawrence Street area of Padiham.

They include installing new gutters and downpipes, pointing and rendering, and painting of the stonework.

Each property is individually assessed as not all the houses need all the works offered. The majority of the owners and residents have given their permission for the scheme to take place.

It follows similar schemes in other parts of the borough, including Brennand Street and Accrington Rd.

Councillor John Harbour, the council’s executive member for housing and environment, said: “This facelifting work helps brighten up the houses and generally gives a boost to the look and feel of aneighbourhood. It’s part of a wider commitment by the council to improving the borough’s housing stock. The work is relatively small-scale but has proved to be a really effective method of improving the way an area looks.”
