Every year we carry out a wide range of consultation about the services that we provide. We seek the views of local residents, businesses, visitors, the voluntary and community sector, and other partners to help us to provide better services and to improve the quality of life in Bolton.

Current consultations

Harveys Nursery Consultation

In September 2017, the Executive Cabinet Member appoved a report setting out proposals to close Harvey Nursery. During the consultation period, parents, stakeholders and members of the community told us how this would affect them and how much they wanted the nursery to remain open. We have listened to all the concerns and have come up with a new set of proposals which would allow the nursery to remain open. We would now like your views on these proposals.

Read the full report that went to cabinet.

Rights of Way Improvement Plan 2018-2028

Public paths, including public rights of way and routes in parks, have traditionally enabled people to exercise and explore the countryside around them and, increasingly, are popular routes for commuting and accessing essential local amenities.

We are asking you to share your comments with us on our latest draft Rights of Way Improvement Plan (ROWIP) 2018 – 2028. The ROWIP sets out an assessment of the current rights of way network and identifies steps which the council intends to take in partnership with various stakeholders to improve the network for the benefit of the public.

The draft ROWIP contains a particular emphasis on the way that the network is managed in the context of challenging public finances and addressing the challenges and opportunities which arise as a result of the continued high level of development within the borough.

If you would like to comment on the draft ROWIP please ensure your comments are received by the council no later than Friday 10 November 2018

Comments can be sent by email to consultation@bolton.gov.uk or by post to Directorate of Place, Public Rights of Way, 3rd Floor, Paderborn House, Howell Croft North, Bolton, BL1 1UA
