PACT PRIORITIES – At the last meeting of Briercliffe Parish Council, the monthly Police And Communities Together priorities were agreed. They are: parking around Briercliffe Primary School especially parking near the lollipop man in Burnley Road and in Kimberley Close; the continuation of police patrols in Standen Hall Drive; and patrols in the Red Spar Road area where there has been damage to cars.

COLD CALLERS – The parish council has supported Coun. Dave Thomas’s suggestion a No Cold Calling Zone be set up in the Red Spar Road area.

COUNCIL WEBSITE – Coun. Prince gave a report on the parish council’s website. The most popular page is the councillors’ page which is being updated. It was decided the monthly police report should be uploaded as well as application forms for funding and allotments.

ALLOTMENTS’ MANAGER – The parish council has appointed John Greenwood as allotments’ manager in a voluntary capacity. If a payment is subsequently agreed the position will be advertised. The Allotment Society will be contacted for two representatives to attend Allotment Committee meetings.

GARAGES – Planning permission from the parish council is needed to build new garages in Harrison Street. This was negotiated with Burnley Council, as the planning authority, some years ago. The parish council and applicants will be charged about £50 for the necessary permission. The clerk has details.
