Standish, Golborne and Lowton investment

As a result of new housing developments in Standish, Golborne and Lowton, Wigan Council has secured funding to improve the local area, mitigating impacts caused by the new housing.

Some of the funds will be used for education, however, there are considerable funds available for infrastructure schemes, including potential changes to road layouts, new parking facilities and improved cycling and walking.

These surveys seek overall public opinion on these schemes, as well as providing you with an overview of community projects that can be brought forward to enhance local parks and community centres.

We recognise how important it is for the community that we spend the money in a way that will benefit residents the most. As a result, we have been working with community groups and ward councillors to discuss these schemes, which will be delivered long-term.

Share your views

This is a great opportunity for you to influence the projects and schemes proposed in your area. Please note that we cannot deliver all of the below schemes, however, we are keen to make choices in line with your feedback.

The consultation closed on Sunday, 21st March 2021.

Residents are also invited to express an interest in attending a virtual Microsoft Teams meeting to understand the plans in more detail. 

The Standish meeting will take place on Monday 15th March and the Golborne and Lowton meeting will take place on Wednesday 17th March. 

Both meetings will be between 6pm and 8.30pm. Residents are asked to email before 5pm on Sunday 14th March.

If you are interested in attending, please email with your name, location and the scheme(s) you are interested in discussing.
