We can all agree that this view at Four Gates is absolutely beautiful.
Unfortunately it’s a case of enjoy it while it lasts.
Thanks to Conservative councillors in Bolton, greedy developers won permission to build a mega industrial estate on these last remaining green fields.
Now we are waiting for the results of an appeal into the plans.
Former Westhoughton mayor Arthur Price, who is the Liberal Democrat candidate for Westhoughton North in the upcoming May elections, said: “I attend the planning meeting and spoke against it and I also attended the appeal and spoke against that.
“It’s quite clear that the Conservatives don’t talk to each other. Their MP wanted this opposed. If they don’t talk to each other can you honestly trust them to put forward what’s right for Westhoughton?”
It’s clear that a vote for the Conservatives is a vote for more destruction of Westhoughton’s green fields.
As soon as we have the result of the appeal we will share this with Westhoughton residents.
