Say NO to 40 houses being built on land behind Homeground

This petition had 48 supporters

Wigan Council have plans to build more than 40 houses on the land at the back of the former Homeground pub. I think it's great that they want to build more homes but the location is NOT ideal for residents that already live nearby. I live on Leicester Road and you are wanting to build on the land that is at the bottom of the street. Children use that field to play on, a resident on the same street maintains the grass on part of the field so that children have somewhere to play. Kids have nothing round here as it is without Wigan Council approving plans to build on said land! I think the elderly who live on Leicester and Lincoln Road have more of a right to say how they feel on the idea more than anyone else. After all, most of them have lived up here for most of their lives! I know a few of the elderly people who live in the bungalows across the road from my house and they particularly like where they live because of how quiet it is. That may not be the case if you allow 40+ houses to be built on their doorstep. I hope you will take into consideration the point I have made and please reconsider your decision. Thanks.
