Have your say on proposed changes to Farnworth Town Centre  

Bolton Council was awarded funding from the Future High Street Fund (FHSF) in early 2021, to deliver a street transformation on Market Street.

In June 2022, the Council consulted on Phase 1 of the scheme, which spans between King Street and Frederick Street, including Coucill Square (the public space at the front of Home Bargains). We are now consulting on Phase 2 of the Market Street scheme, which spans between Gladstone Road and King Street in the North and Frederick Street to Long Causeway in the South.

Phase 2 will be funded by the City Region Sustainable Transport Settlements (CRSTS) funding. We are looking to use the funding to improve accessibility to and within the town centre, enhance people’s experience and support local businesses.

Our proposals aim to create a balanced street that better supports the regeneration of Farnworth. It will be better for people passing through or visiting Farnworth on foot, by bicycle and by public transport, and will connect the town centre with the Phase 1 scheme.

The scheme will provide:

  • Improved footways, with smoother surfaces and improved drainage along Market Street, creating an improved environment for pedestrians.
  • New pedestrian crossings making it safter to cross the road.
  • Continuous footways on side roads giving priority to pedestrians over vehicles.
  • Better active travel facilities, including separated cycle lanes along the majority of the route.
  • More green features along the street, with new trees and planting.
  • New street furniture creating places to stop and rest.
