WIDESPREAD HOUSING DEVELOPMENT IN HORWICH:
These are the published figures from the 2013 Draft Allocation Plan from Bolton Council for land set aside for Housing Development.
Well it appears to me that Horwich is taking an unfair and disproportionate burden for Bolton’s Core Planning Strategy - without any promise of resources... There are approximately 3,559 homes allocated for this area. That equates approximately to 8,000 extra people and 4,500 cars.
Housing allocations by district:
Horwich & Blackrod: 3,559
Little Lever and Kearsley: 552
Inner Bolton: 1885
West Bolton: 132
North Bolton: 412
