IN response to your article headlined ‘Approved plans may put people’s safety at risk’, I fully agree with Terry Pemberton.

I attended both planning meetings and as a long-term resident of the estate in question I could not believe how they were conducted.

Residents put forward an alternative plan for traffic to go through Corner Lane.

This plan was rejected, as going onto the main road would be quite dangerous.

Yet Wigan Council has approved two developments in Hindley Green which both exit onto the main Atherton Road.

When Tiverton Avenue is opened up to traffic from the new development, should there be any accidents the blame will lie squarely with Wigan Council and Bellway Homes for not giving serious consideration to residents’ alternative plans for traffic.
