On Saturday 29th October I made residents aware that up to 3000 houses were planned to be built across the North of Bolton [read here]
These potential sites for new houses have been released, and the major developments occur around the following areas: Horrocks Fold, Thornham Drive, Cox Green/Last Drop & Longsight Park Golf Course.
Before any new houses are built anywhere in Bolton we need significant investment in infrastructure. The Additional Tory Government cuts will make any accommodation of extra houses near impossible. How are residents going to cope?
Our local health centres are under threat of closure, children’s centres are closing, our town centre is full of empty shops, we’ll lose more green space and it is very doubtful these houses will be affordable to normal working people.
It seems both the Tory Government and local Labour party have not thought these plans through properly.
