At the planning committee Wigan Independent Conservatives Councillor George Fairhurst said that this would cause gridlock round Wigan with people having two cars per unit if they were sold like the developer says. He also said that there was no demand for these type of dwellings and recommended that the committee refuse the application. Labour voted this through.

College buildings to yet more flats
Wigan Council planning committee have given approval for a planning application to turn the old college buildings on Bridgeman Terrace, Wigan. I objected to this application has we do not need more flats in Wigan. With more and more of these flats getting repossessed and laying empty the demand for these type of homes are not required to the number that Wigan have. With more and more lenders with tight lending criteria for new build flats even if they were obtaining money on them is harder than if some one were buying a house. So why does Wigan Council continually allow these to be built only to lay empty.
