    Applications to be discussed today:
  • Controversial plans to build a Sainsbury's and two other shops at the old Green Bengal restaurant in Bromley Cross.
  • A wind turbine – half the height of Blackpool Tower – which could be built at a Turton farm.
  • A sports pavilion at Bolton Wanderers Academy Land in Lostock.
  • Plans to erect a timber building for horses and agricultural equipment in Horwich — previously compared to a "concentration camp" by Horwich town councillors.

Thanks for the update its a great idea and I hope it is done at other meetings

I notice that yet again an application refused at Horwich council has been ignored another example of Bolton council ignoring the feelings of Horwich people!

Thanks. We're aiming to cover every major Bolton Council meeting and planning committee in this way, as well as various other events.

Cllr Elaine Sherrington must have had the whole bag of humbugs in her mouth when she declared that wind turbines are a lot nicer than electricity pylons! Sorry luv but pylons don't move, whereas wind turbines annoyingly draw the eye as the blades turn round.... and what was all that guff about 1000s of wind turbines in Yosemite National Park? What's that got to do with it or even anything? And Cllr Kellett? Strewth what an aggressive woman! Didn't like us in the public gallery one bit! Mind you we didn't like her! Took the side of Farmer Paton in no uncertain terms!
