Your Labour Team have been notified that Wigan & Leigh Housing (WALH) have appointed consultants to commence ground investigation works on the site of the former Anthorn Rd Community Centre which will include bore holes and trial pits.
Work is expected to start on site this week with the intrusive works likely to last no more than a week with ongoing occasional monitoring for some months.
The site is still under the ownership of Wigan Council and we understand that WALH have not yet decided whether or not to acquire the site. We will off course keep residents appraised of any future developments.
Cllr Paul Kenny has confirmed that the site is one of several across the Borough that are being looked at by WALH to assist in the delivery of affordable housing. Your Labour Team will ensure that any future proposals will be subject to appropriate consultation with local residents.
