Burnley Town Centre Improvements
Meeting: 10/08/2017 - Cabinet (Item 10)
Cabinet considered a report on improvements to Burnley Town Centre which was a jointly funded project between the County Council and Burnley Borough Council.
It was noted that a shortfall in funding had been identified and a further contribution of £325,000 from the County Council was requested to complete the project which would need to be matched by a contribution of £325,000 from the Borough Council.
Consideration was given to alternative measures should Burnley Borough Council not agree its contribution. A commitment was also given to improve future monitoring of this project and enhance engagement on this and other projects with partner bodies.
i. an additional £325,000 be added to the 2015/16 Burnley Town Centre Improvements project to be funded from the capital programme, subject to confirmation from Burnley Borough Council of their agreement to provide additional funding of £325,000 towards the project.
ii. Burnley Borough Council's contribution of £325,000, once received, be added to the 2015/16 Burnley Town Centre Improvement project.
iii. officers be requested to develop alternative proposals for the additional £325,000 LCC funding should Burnley Borough Council not agree to provide additional funding of £325,000.
