Further consultation is underway on changes to Bolton’s draft Allocations Plan.
The plan shows how sites could be used for developments such as new housing, new sites for jobs, and health facilities over the next 15 years.
Bolton Council has proposed a number of changes following feedback from residents, including deleting a number of proposed housing sites, adding some new potential sites, and amending some policies to reflect the government’s new national planning policy framework.
The council would now like to hear everybody’s views on the proposed changes before it prepares the plan for publication.
To comment or view proposed changes to the plan go to www.bolton.gov.uk/allocationsplan. Paper copies of the plan are available in the One Stop Shop at Bolton Town Hall and in local libraries.
The consultation is open until December 14. After this the council will prepare the Allocations Plan for publication, when there will be an opportunity to make further comments. This stage is expected to be in 2013.
The plan will then be submitted to the government for approval, and a Planning Inspector will hold a public examination with a view to the council adopting the final plan in September 2014.
