Welcome to Colne Town Council

Colne Town Council look after our beautiful town, Colne is a vibrant and handsome market town in north-east Lancashire surrounded by a glorious upland landscape, including the famous Pendle Hill. Its unspoilt countryside can be easily explored on foot or bike and we are close to many of Pendle’s loveliest villages, such as Wycollar, Trawden and Blacko. Boulsworth Hill, to the North of the Colne, is also part of Pendle’s Three Peaks Trails, while the Pendle Way and Bronte Way pass through the area.

Colne is home to the original Boundary Mill and has a thriving retail sector, with many quirky independent shops and restaurants. The Muni, Hippodrome and The Little Theatre provide fabulous cultural enrichment to the town, which also hosts the Great British Rhythm and Blues Festival each August as part of a very busy event schedule run by Colne Town Council.

Sport plays an important role in Colne life, with Colne FC, Colne Cricket Club, Colne Rugby Club, Cycle Sport Pendle and swimming Club, Colne Sharks, catering for those with sporting aspirations.

Capital Investment Consultation Period

To deliver such improvements, and keep their finances on a proper footing to, also deliver further investment into Alkincoates Park, Town Councillors have agreed to borrow funds to enable them to continue to deliver improvements for the residents of Colne. The Town Hall has benefitted by around £90,000 of investment, costs that the Town Council has had to incur already from out of its revenue budget, but now the works have been completed, it is now in a position to capitalise these funds by way of replacement borrowing. Colne Town Council’s portfolio of playgrounds is currently being reviewed, but already it has emerged that around £160,000 will require to be invested in order to replace surfaces as well as equipment, where replacement is needed and or, play value needs to be improved.  Overall it is anticipated that a total borrowing requirement of £250,000 will be needed at the moment, and as part of good governance arrangements the Town Council, wishes to seek the views of its Precept Payers regarding the support for this to enable improvements to continue to be delivered. Repayment of this loan is already factored into the [...]
