New mega industrial estate for Wingates

Wingates Industrial Estate

Plans for a new MEGA industrial estate in Wingates have emerged causing concern for residents.

In 2016 Labour-run Bolton Council encouraged developers to submit sites for potential future development for housing and industrial units.

Developers have suggested they would like to develop a huge swathe of land running from the current Wingates Industrial Estate along the A6 to Dicconson Lane and all the way down to the railway line.

If it were to be built it would see almost every green field concreted over and hundreds of extra heavy goods vehicles on Wingates’ congested roads.

Your Westhoughton Liberal Democrat team is encouraging residents to have their say on the plans before it is too late.
