Join Burnley Council at this special event in Manchester, which will showcase the latest housing, retail and student accommodation opportunities available in the growing Lancashire town.
This year has seen Burnley Council adopt its Local Plan, which will guide development into the 2030s, and is developing its Town Centre Masterplan.
The half-day conference on Tuesday 30 October will discuss the shovel-ready sites for housebuilders, the opportunities for retailers in a regenerated town centre, and the impact of Burnley’s strengthening position as a digital hub.
With the University of Central Lancashire’s well-established Burnley campus attracting a wider range of students every year, the event will also discuss how best to deliver on the accommodation and leisure needs of an increasingly youthful town.
