A business group called Leigh Central Forum has been designated as a Neighbourhood Forum in order to prepare a Neighbourhood Plan for Leigh town centre.
The group was formally designated as a Neighbourhood Forum on 21 April 2022 for a period of 5 years ending 21 April 2027.
The Forum is now in the process of preparing the Neighbourhood Plan which will cover the Leigh Central Neighbourhood Area. The Plan will be subject to public consultation in due course.
Once adopted, the Neighbourhood Plan will form part of the statutory development plan for the borough and will be given substantial weight in considering planning applications within the designated Neighbourhood Area.
