Opportunity now to Rebalance Wigan Road housing mix

Speaking after the planning committee refused the application for student accommodation at The Windmill, Adrian who is ward councillor expressed his delight at the decision.

“I have worked to ensure that the concerns of residents were heard loud and clear from the time the application was submitted in August right through to speaking at the planning committee. This was quite simply the wrong type of proposed development in the wrong area.

The redevelopment of this site gives an opportunity to rebalance the community in this part of town and I hope that plans come forward in the future that the community can support.”
