THE latest in a series of public meetings which give people the chance to speak to Burnley Council decision-makers is being held later this month.
Members of the public are invited along to chat to Coun Andy Tatchell about the work being done to revitalise Burnley’s economy, create jobs and attract new businesses to the borough.
Coun Tatchell’s surgery will be held on Wednesday, March 13 between 11am and 1pm in the entrance foyer of the Lancashire Digital Technology Centre, in Bancroft Road.
The meeting is aimed at business people but is also open to any member of the public.
Topics up for discussion could include plans to develop the local economy, the council’s new business support programme, promoting the borough as a place to invest, and creating the workforce of the future.
Council officers will also be on hand to help with queries and comments.
Coun Tatchell, the council’s executive member for regeneration and economic development, said: “Creating a strong, vibrant local economy is vital to the future of our borough. We need to do all we can to help support business so they can create much-needed jobs.
“I’m looking forward to meeting business people and residents to talk about how we can work together to make this happen.
“People can come along and chat to me anytime during the surgery, and I will do my utmost to answer any questions they may have and share our vision for Burnley’s future.”
