Leigh West Big Local area is in the centre of Leigh and is bounded by Kirkhall Lane, Atherleigh Way, Twist Lane and King Street/Market Street/Leigh Road.
Since being announced as a Big Local area residents have taken part in a series of consultation exercises culminating in a programme in Summer 2011 which saw over 700 people provide 2500+ suggestions on what could be done to improve the area.
We have now published our Big Local plan in which we explain that residents want the area to be safer and healthier. They want there to be employment and work experience opportunities, especially for young people so that they have a positive future to look forward to. They want the area to be clean and green. They want property to be kept in good condition and for both sale and rental prices to be competitive. They want there to be lots of community spirit with people from all backgrounds getting on together, mixing together and respecting each other.
