Successful grant application will fund action against rogue landlords

A successful bid by Burnley Council for extra Government funding will help pay for more action to tackle rogue landlords in the borough.

The council will receive £62,294 which will be used to enable housing staff to carry out a programme of more targeted enforcement and other work.

Councillor John Harbour, the council’s executive member for housing and environment, said: “We’re very pleased that we will receive the full amount of grant that we applied for. This money will help improve conditions for residents in our borough.

Council leader thanks local postmen and women for delivering a first class Christmas

Burnley Council leader Mark Townsend visited the town’s sorting office to see first-hand the operation of delivering Christmas post and to pass on early season’s greetings to its dedicated, hardworking staff.

Councillor Townsend was shown around the office by delivery office manager Simon Figg and was introduced to the postmen and women who will be pulling out all the stops to sort and deliver mail in the busy Christmas period.

“Together an Active Burnley” to make residents healthier

A strategy which sets out a five-year vision to increase physical activity has been approved by Burnley councillors.

Burnley Council’s executive was told that more than 40% of adults in the borough are not sufficiently active which contributes to two-thirds of adults being classed as overweight or obese. Almost one-in-four children in Pennine Lancashire are classed as obese when they reach secondary school age.

The executive approved the Burnley Physical Activity and Sport Strategy 2018-23 when it met last night (11th December).

Garden waste collections extended to allow autumn clear-out

Burnley Council’s garden waste collections are being extended to allow householders to get rid of any “green” autumnal waste such as leaves and other garden “debris”. 

The council’s fortnightly garden waste collections usually come to a temporary stop at the end of November as gardening generally takes a winter break and demand for the service isn’t as high. 

Pioneer Place leisure development moves to next stage

Burnley Council’s executive has recommended that the council invest in a major leisure development at Curzon Street. A final decision on whether to back the scheme will take place at a meeting of the full council on 19th December.

The scheme is to be known as Pioneer Place. The development would involve the relocation of Reel Cinema from Manchester Road. A supermarket is expected to move to the existing cinema site.
