'NO' to Development at Herons Wharf

We the undersigned call on Morris Homes to withdraw plans for their proposed residential development at Herons Wharf, Appley Bridge and for Wigan Council to reject the planning application A/13/77898.

The proposed developmentis unnecessary and unwanted by the local community, who have numerous concerns includingthe levels of contamination at the identified land, access to and from the site and future traffic issues on Mill Lane when the development is completed. There is no assurance current utilities and infrastructure can withstand the development and that it will simply destroy a pleasant green space currently utilised by members of local and neighbouring communities.

The consultation process was not adequate and delivering the information during the week before Christmas caused unnecessary stress to local residents.

We call on you to withdraw/reject the proposal and to honour the verbal assurances given by yourselvesto residents who bought properties in the good faith that the land identified for development would not be built on in the future.


Ward Councillors: Paul Collins Michael Crosby Damian Edwardson
