Coun. Mark Townsend, Burnley Council’s executive member for economy and growth, said: “I’m sure people will be glad to see this well-used town centre car park back in use. I’d like to thank them for their patience while it was unavoidably closed as part of the work to build the exciting Pioneer Place development.”

It is expected that the Pioneer Place construction will support around 180 jobs, with a further 100-plus new jobs being created in the cinema and supporting food outlets.
