The housebuilder Persimmon Homes is appealing a decision to refuse its plan for 300 homes at Lee Hall.

Hundreds of Westhoughton people stood up against the controversial plans.

Westhoughton councillor David Wilkinson dismissed the idea because of the massive traffic problems it would cause along Park Road, which already suffers from traffic congestion.

Now the housebuilder hopes to win with an appeal decided upon by a Government inspector.

The public planning inquiry will take place from Tuesday 5 July and will be held at Queens Park Pavilion in Bolton.

David said: “It is ridiculous that they are holding such an important inquiry in Bolton rather than Westhoughton. It’s as if they don’t want Westhoughton people to have a voice. These plans are wrong and we have to send a very clear message to the developers and the planning inspector.”
