Upper Aughton Rd -progress at last, new affordable houses start date Sept 2011

I've been batting away for a long time trying to get the bit of derelict land in Upper Aughton Rd developed with low cost housing.  We desperately need the homes and the folk around about have had to put up with a boarded site for far too long.

The site was originally owned by Servite Houses who (after years of doing nothing) sold it on to Adactus Housing. Richard Hands and I decided we needed to go and visit them in the HQ in Leigh to try and get a handle on progress. They did submit a planning application but then things went quiet.

I am delighted to report that after writing to them again I have received a letter confirming that a contractor has been appointed and that they start on site on 12th September 2011

I am happy to address most contributions, even the drunken ones if they are coherent, but I am not going to engage with negative sniping from those who do not have the guts to add their names or a consistent on-line identity to their comments. Such postings will not be published.

Anonymous comments with a constructive contribution to make to the discussion, even if it is critical will continue to be posted. Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.

I will also not tolerate personation so please do not add comments in the name of real people unless you are that person. If you do not like these rules then start your own blog.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.

The views expressed in comments are those of the poster, not me.
