Plans have been made and shown to the public for a third prison in Ulnes Walton. This is considerably larger than the existing 2 prisons of HMP Garth and HMP Wymott and will encroach onto the estate. The plans show 4 story buildings which will be above the tree line possibly allowing prisoners to view the estate and families that live there, as well as being an eyesore. The traffic from the prison will affect Croston, Leyland, Eccleston, Bretheton and Chorley as workers come from afar. The plan includes building on land used by local residents for leisure and recreation, with this being removed it will make the community even more cut off. Another issue is the parking situation with plans for a new car park with entrance on the estate, this will lead to further traffic and parking issues with current speed restrictions in the area not being abided by and cars double parking on the estate already. Newts have also been found in the area the plans are for the prison, which means vital habitat being destroyed. Owners of homes on the estate were not all made aware of plans for a third prison and therefore may lose value in their homes. Prisoners will be able to leave to go to work, meaning they’ll be entering the estate and standing at the bus stop with children.
