Plans for 58 houses at Hartley’s Farm, off Wingates Lane, are being recommended for APPROVAL when Bolton councillors make their decision on November 16.
The recommendation comes despite residents being up in arms about the potential loss of another green field – not to mention the additional traffic problems it would create.
Wingates town councillor Bernadette Eckersley-Fallon, pictured above meeting local residents, has objected to the plans and supported residents. She said: “I hope the council finds some common sense next week and refuses these unacceptable plans.
“There are real concerns that this development will put extra cars on the already difficult junction of Wingates Lane and the A6.”
Councillors on Bolton Council’s planning committee will visit the site in the morning on November 16 to see the site for themselves.
