Further to our recent posting on this issue we can report that progress with this and a number of other sites across the Borough has been delayed as a result of the Contractor who was carrying out the site investigation going into administration. Wigan & Leigh Housing (WALH) is to arrange a new survey which is timetabled to be completed by the end of November.
If WALH wish to proceed with a housing development scheme then this would be subject to a formal planning application.
We are further informed that a programme of consultation in respect of all potential sites and a letter will be sent to adjoining residents of Anthorn Rd in the near future.
It is WALHs contractor's intention to carry out a number of feasibility surveys on various sites before the end of November. We shall keep residents informed of any potential activity on the site as and when we receive confirmation of dates.
