Objectives

PROTECT HULTON PARK is campaigning in response to a Public Inquiry into the development of the Estate into a Golf Course.  Peel L&P appealed Bolton Council’s decision to refuse planning permission because of increased traffic congestion causing more air pollution, water pollution and inappropriate development on Green Belt as reason to bypass this Law.

 

We need the help of a number of key volunteers to keep the public informed via a digital / social media campaign.  PROTECT HULTON PARK agree with other local community groups that the development will cause more harm with the loss of farms, loss of wildlife, loss of Historic Grade II Park, loss of ancient trees and hedges and insufficient infrastructure.

PROTECT HULTON PARK isn’t a protest group.  We aim to challenge and open up a constructive debate with other stakeholders in Greater Manchester.  Peel are on the record saying that alternative use for the land will need to be found if permission for a Golf Course is refused, which it should be given as the North WestfF already has an abundance of Championship Golf Courses many of which are facing closure.

 

PROTECT HULTON PARK believe a Golf Course isn’t the best use of this Historic Park and we should seek to identify more environmentally friendly outcomes, to enable the Park to be enjoyed by the wider population of Greater Manchester for generations to come
