Golborne-based Community Action Party is fundamentally opposed to the development of Green Belt land for many reasons, including environmental. We are opposed to the adoption of the Core Strategy by Wigan Council, as published in WEP Mon 10th June, which will result in a minimum of one thousand additional new houses being built in Golborne and Lowton.
We disagree with the Conservative councillor for Lowton East James Grundy who has indicated he is supporting the adoption of the Core Strategy. In adopting the Core Strategy, the Council will be virtually handing on a plate Green Belt land for development in Lowton & Golborne.
These proposals should be fought at every stage and not supported to ensure the environment is protected, that communities are sustainable and residents are not adversely affected.
Michael Moulding, Deputy Leader, Community Action Party
