The eight wards that are likely to see tougher restrictions in Blackburn

A targeted approach to reducing the spread of Coronavirus in Blackburn with Darwen is set to be announced today.

In a post earlier today, Blackburn with Darwen Council have highlighted the wards that are likely to be falling under new strict restrictions, including a ban on residents socialising with anyone they don’t live with. A full update is expected later.

The eight wards are those with the highest rates of infection which are:

  • Audley and Queens Park
  • Blackburn Central
  • Roe Lee
  • Billinge and Beardwood
  • Bastwell and Daisyfield
  • Shear Brow and Corporation Park
  • Little Harwood and Whitebirk
  • Wensley Fold

Councillor Mohammed Khan OBE, Leader of Blackburn with Darwen Council, said:

We know that our residents have been making huge sacrifices and that businesses are struggling – we desperately needed to prevent the threat of a full, borough-wide lockdown as this would have been devastating.

We will continue with our important work fighting this infection at a really local level – focusing our resources and efforts on our residents who need it most.
