District Centre Developments

Our ambitious plans are not just limited Bolton town centre, for the benefit of the whole of Bolton we also want to transform our district centres in Farnworth, Little Lever, Westhoughton and Horwich.

Our aim is for the £16m funding to provide a kick start for our communities and district town centres equipping them with strategies and plans to meet the challenges faced by high streets across the country and to remain vibrant and vital. With local community support and targeted interventions we aim to provide masterplans that will ultimately attract private sector investment and secure development proposals for a better future.

We are also seeking additional government funding to support plans for Farnworth from the Government’s Future High Street Fund and are always on the lookout for new development ideas.

The district centres are an important part of our regeneration plans.

Councillor David Greenhalgh, Leader of Council is passionate about the investment in them and  outlines why they are included in our development plans.
