A public meeting to discuss the controversial plans to build 300 houses at Lee Hall is to be held.
The planning consultant acting for Persimmon Homes will be holding a consultation event at the Carnegie Hall in Westhoughton on Thursday 10 September 2015 between 3pm and 7pm.
The event provides an opportunity for residents to discuss the planning application and the issues revolving around the development proposals.
It comes as Westhoughton councillor David Wilkinson has spoken strongly against the plans which would cause traffic chaos around Westhoughton and would see one of our last remaining green fields developed. A petition is also running.
The applicant, Persimmon Homes, Harcourt Developments and Peel Holdings/Investments are seeking full planning permission for the erection of 300 dwellings on 14.16 hectares of land bounding Park Road, Platt Lane and the Chequerbent roundabout. The planning application number is 94696/15.
Representatives from the developer and Bolton Council will be there to answer any questions.
Feedback/comment sheets will be available at the event for people to fill in. Any comments will be recorded on the planning file and taken into consideration when council officers come to make a formal recommendation to the Planning Committee.
