Burnley Council has published savings proposals as part of its plans to meet financial challenges.

A report by council’s head of finance and property services, Asad Mushtaq, to the council’s scrutiny committee sets out the financial position for the council and how it can balance the books over the coming three years.

The annual woodland festival is taking place at Towneley Park, Burnley, on Sunday (9th) from noon to 4pm.

The event features a wide range of attractions, plus the opportunity to take a look around historic Towneley Hall.

It is part of the wider Heritage Open Days weekend which runs over the whole weekend at various locations around the borough.



Burnley Council has been told it “should be proud of its achievements” following a review of its services and plans for the borough by an independent review team.

A world-leading Burnley business has been honoured for its commitment to the borough.

Pipeline Induction Heat (PIH) was presented with the Long Standing Contribution to Burnley Award, to mark the 30 years the company has been based in the town, by Burnley Council leader Councillor Mark Townsend and its chief executive Mick Cartledge.

Local residents are being reminded that follow-up visits are about to start to those householders who have not yet returned their annual voter registration canvass form.

The forms were hand delivered to every household in the borough last month (July) asking residents to check whether the information that appears on the electoral register for those living at their address is correct.

The aim of the form is to ensure that the electoral register is up to date and to identify any residents who are not registered so that they can be encouraged to do so.

Organisers of a community clean-up campaign in Burnley are hoping the idea will be extended.

Volunteers from the Jamia Masjid Ibrahim mosque took part in a litter pick on Saturday (18th August) after residents raised concern about the cleanliness of the area with local councillor Saeed Chaudhary.

Councillor Chaudhary arranged with the mosque for the community to get together and tackle the issue.

Burnley Council provided litter pickers, gloves, hi-vis jackets and bags.

A Burnley park  has been officially re-launched following nine months of restoration work funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Burnley Council.

Guests gathered at the new gates at Thompson Park on Sunday (19th) to watch deputy Mayor of Burnley Councillor Anne Kelly officially unveil the new-look park.

The day included a Fun in the Park event including dance, music and stalls.

Both the park’s boathouse and pavilion have been restored to a high standard while retaining their original 1930s’ architectural features.

People are being invited to discover the heritage right on their doorstep as some of Burnley’s historic landmarks open their doors to the public during the annual Heritage Open Days weekend (7th-9th September).

The event is part of a national celebration of architecture and culture and will offer people an opportunity to find out more about the town through its grand architecture and some of its most imposing buildings.

The weekend will end with the annual Woodland Festival in Towneley Park on Sunday 9th September, noon to 4pm.

This Sunday sees the "re-opening" of Thompson Park, Burnley, following a £1.2 million refurbishment programme.
