This is the official Save Standish petition to stop houses being built on Standish's open green spaces.

We, the undersign, are outraged by the new proposals by the Government's planning inspector to allow the Council to build 1000 new homes on Open Green Spaces in Standish. We, the undersign, believe that the extra traffic will bring Standish to a standstill and there is no real prospects to deal with this issue. We also believe that the landscape on the three sites being looked at are of great value and interest to the local residents. With these matters, and others, we support the Save Standish campaign to keep the three sites in Standish free from houses at this time.

Thank you for your support.



  • andrea fishburn we moved to Standish because of the beauty and open spaces, we live near to the motorway junction which is already too busy, more traffic would make it unsafe.

  • Anonymous Standish is already far too overdeveloped, the road network is choked and the local ammenities cannot cope with more people or traffic.

  • damien duddridge no new houses in pepper lane

    Comments: Standish is built up enough there is already nowhere to park and it is a nightmare to drive through the main street at rush hour so more houses would mean more cars means more pollution and congestion on the already overcrowded roads

    Comments: I'm astounded that Wigan council are proposing to build so many more houses in what is a currently a cramped area with poor infrastructure, limited school places and not enough services. Leave Standish alone!
