Share this article

The future of Burnley’s historic Weavers’ Triangle and the town centre is being put open for discussion.

Burnley Council is inviting the public to give their thoughts on two draft strategies setting out its vision for the future of these two key areas of town.

Coun. Roger Frost, Executive member for the environment, said: “The draft strategies are a step forward in achieving attractive living places while providing safe communities.

“The final document will be used to help make decisions on issues ranging from new road crossings to public art and it is vital users of the town centre and Weavers’ Triangle – including young people and businesses – share their opinions and help to shape this important document.”

The four-week consultation will be launched on Monday. Council officers will be at the Charity Arch, St James’s Street (near McDonald’s) between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Thursday, to get their views.

The plans will also be on view at Burnley Town Hall and Contact Centre during office hours, Burnley Central Library and Padiham Library, and will be accessible via www.burnley.gov.uk/LDF.

Members can contact the council’s policy and environment unit on 01282 425011 or by e-mail to ldf@burnley.gov.uk.
