    On the agenda at today's planning meeting:
  • SS Osmund and Andrew RC Primary School wants to build a new nursery building, despite neighbours' complaints that it will mean more noisy toddlers.
  • Eagley Infant School is bidding to keep a climbing frame for kids after neighbours complained that youngsters were peeping into their back gardens.
  • A developer is asking for three more years to build a trio of new houses in Astley Bridge.
  • The former Elite Boxing gym could be turned into a respite care centre for young adults.
  • A new toddler play area could be built in green space off Milnthorpe Road, Breightmet.

We were initially concerned about moving close to a school when we were house hunting. Then we realised - we're at work all day, so it wouldn't affect us in the slightest. In any event, listening to the sound of small children having fun isn't exactly the worst noise you could be forced to listen to. Miserable old buggers.

Exactly Brian Jones, well said.

I thought Bolton was supposed to be the friendliest town in Britain. So friendly we moan about kids enjoying themselves!

Neighbours' complaints that it will mean more noisy toddlers. Just ask yourself wtf am I moaning about?

Noisy children in a school? Who would have thought it.

If you don't like living near a school, either put up with the hour a day or move. Simple.

It nays new nursery building, and believe it or not, kids at nursery spend a lot more than an hour playing outside when the weather is fine, plus it wasn't there when they moved in so have every right to object.

Most of those residents have been there as long as the school. A nursery wont make much difference to the noise..although they should do something about the parking for that school. Its absolutely diabolical. Yes I know its half an hour twice a day but its an accident waiting to happen..msny a time that road is gridlocked because of peoples careless parking..they dont give a s..t

I see it has been approved, and it says that it is a replacement and not additional as some of us was led to believe.
Ah well, tough booby as they say.

Children peeping into gardens???

Ask yourself a question... is your neighbour a moonlighting clown?

LOL

Never thought I'd say this but it seems the council have used their common sense today. How ridiculous that an INFANT school has to fight to keep a climbing frame because (shock, horror) children climb on it. As for the miserable people complaining about noisy toddlers I would hate to think how boring and dull your childhood was if you weren't also once a toddler who was allowed to play and learn.
