"Cllr Elaine Sherrington, also a Tonge councillor, said residents have asked her if they were growing a forest on the site, it's that overgrown."

"The council and applicant have also agreed a 2,500 sq metre limit for the office space in these plans, so it doesn't take away from Bolton town centre"


Any office development takes away business from the town center.

It seems council are doing their utmost to destroy it.

I've noticed Bury has become a much better shopping experience and that despite it being 3 more miles to get to than Bolton , parking isn't a problem , it's cleaner and I don't have to look at shuttered filthy shops all over the place.
