Burnley Borough Council has been successful in securing £1.2 million from Historic England for a Heritage Action Zone (HAZ) focussed with the Lower St James’s Street area of Burnley Town Centre.

The Lower St James’s Street HAZ provides a unique opportunity with investment into the built environment, combined with community engagement to enhance the streetscape, reduce building vacancies and increase visitors to the area.

HAZ Objectives

The Burnley HAZ Scheme will include physical aspects such as building on the areas existing assets, physical works, street furniture/signage and improved traffic flow and access, as well as creating new creative spaces, creating an Empire Theatre vision, Community engagement and a Cultural programme.
