The Wigan Local Plan Core Strategy was adopted in September 2013. It is the strategic local plan for the borough. It sets out the spatial vision through to 2026 and a range of strategic objectives and policies.
It replaces a large number of policies in the Unitary Development Plan and changes the policies map by the addition of a site at Northleigh Park, between Hindley and Leigh.
In accordance with Policy SP4, strategic infrastructure assessments have been produced to inform the Council’s decision making on planning applications for housing development in the two broad locations of Standish and Golborne and Lowton.
