Bolton Council is creating masterplans for Horwich, Little Lever and Westhoughton.

Consultation on the proposals for each area starts ran from 27th January 20 until 23rd February and drop-in events took place in each area.

They are following the lead from Farnworth, whose masterplan was approved last year.

A pot of £16m has been allocated to support all four district town centres.

Steering groups, chaired by local councillors, have already met in each area to discuss ideas to shape the proposals.

Urban regeneration specialists BDP have now drawn up initial proposals following discussions at group meetings, as well as at stakeholder meetings with local residents, councillors, businesses and partners.

Proposals include suggestions around redeveloping the high street, improving pedestrian access, and creating new town centre homes.
