A NEW community centre has opened in Burnley Wood, funded by the area’s largest social housing landlord Taylor Housing.

The centre, in Springfield Road, at the junction of Dall Street, will be a one-stop shop for residents.

They will be able to meet councillors and representatives from Taylor Housing there during regular meetings, and will also be able to find more information on or report issues such as fly-tipping, housing, anti-social behaviour and crime.

Ward councillor Karen Heseltine said: “This is a great boost for the local community.”

Private appointments can be made by telephoning one of the councillors for the area.
