I’m not planning to write a lot about this, given that it is an ongoing process. As Westhoughton residents will already be aware, the developers wishing to build 300 new houses off the Chequerbent Roundabout in Westhoughton have appealed against Bolton Council’s decision to refuse them planning permission. The first day of the appeal hearing was today.
The developer’s barrister lodged a request to adjourn the appeal hearing in order to produce more information that had not been produced earlier, and the Council’s solicitor agreed to this. The appeal was subsequently adjourned, to reconvene at a later date.
At this moment, it’s looking like that date will be in January.
If anything changes, I’ll post about that but until then there’s nothing more to say.
