Furious Westhoughton residents have been throwing away leaflets that have dropped through their doors this week from Bellway Homes, promoting luxury new homes at Bowlands Hey, off Collingwood Way, which they do NOT yet have permission for.

The house builder is encouraging people interested in buying the properties to register their interest, possibly in the hope of telling Bolton Council that they should give permission for the plans because of the interest in their properties.

Westhoughton councillor David Wilkinson said: “Residents are quite rightly wondering if the house builder thinks it is a done deal when they put leaflets out like this even before the plans have been discussed.”

It is understood that the plans will go before Bolton Council’s planning committee on December 15.
