Compulsory purchase The Brierfield & Three Pigeons Pub, Blackburn Rd.

This petition had 2,800 supporters

I the undersigned, request that the Leader of Bolton Council issues a compulsory purchase order for The Brierfield & Three Pigeons Pub on Blackburn Rd, Astley Bridge.

Both buildings are very run down, they're causing a detrimental impact on the local area, the state of repair has a negative impact on house values and statistics show that run down and empty building contribute to rises in crime in an area.

Planning permission was granted in DEC 2012 for The Three Pigeons, 'conditions required development to commence before 2/12/15', and 'shall be begun before the expiration of 3 years from the date of this permission.'

It is clear both owners have no intentions of developing the buildings in the immediate future, therefore we request the Council steps in with a CPO (compulsory purchase order) to bring the buildings back into public use.
