Fears that parking problems on Park Road could get worse have been raised as Bolton at Home plan to build 21 new houses at the former council depot.

Westhoughton town councillor David Wilkinson pointed out that there was no measurement of distances between the proposed homes and existing homes nearby, meaning they could not judge how badly it could affect the light for nearby properties.

He said: “Bolton At Home are the applicants so they could look at this design and location of the properties on that particular area of the site.

“There are a number of other issues. Parking in that area is very, very bad. On a good day, some of the roads around there still look like a battlefield.

“It is a reasonable request and I hope they have looked at it and made sure they addressed the concerns.”
