Opening a piece of Bolton’s unseen heritage to the public for the first time in 700 years.

Peel L&P’s revised proposals for the ground-breaking restoration and redevelopment of the Hulton Park Estate will create a new international sports destination and resort, bringing a wide range of health and wellbeing benefits to the community creating over 1,000 jobs and providing a mix of much-needed housing.

The venue would be capable of hosting the world-famous Ryder Cup golf tournament in 2031 or 2035 and the proposals present a huge levelling up opportunity for Bolton and the North West - worth £1.6bn in socio-economic benefits for the area over 20 years.  

Having reviewed feedback on a scheme approved by the Secretary of State in 2020, Peel L&P launched a refreshed vision for the Hulton Park site. The new plans incorporate a number of important changes designed to better reflect local aspirations for Hulton Park, in particular ambitions to make the scheme more sustainable, inclusive, accessible and to create more new community facilities for local people.

The proposals include the delivery of a wide range of new homes, including affordable properties, designed to meet local housing needs. The masterplan has been designed to significantly reduce the number of homes on Green Belt compared to the approved scheme. Following the public consultation carried out over the summer, the number of new homes in the revised planning application have been significantly reduced to 1,036.

Combined with the extensive new areas of green space on site, the submitted plans will unlock a range of new facilities including, improved pedestrian and cycle access, events spaces and exciting community facilities for use by existing and future residents and placing greater emphasis on access to nature and wellbeing.

A local, regional and national
legacy in the North West

The plans also now include allotments and a new village hall for Over Hulton. Alongside the new village hall, the submitted plans include a range of other community facilities such as a health and wellbeing hub, which could support facilities such as a lido, gym and space for exercise classes, and Chequerbent Barns, a flexible food and drink venue.

The new homes and community facilities will be located within a beautiful parkland setting, which will enhance access to nature through new parks, meadows and hides. Importantly, the Hulton Park Estate will be opened to surrounding communities through a network of new and improved trails equating to around 15km of walkways, cycle paths and nature trails.

The proposals are dependent upon securing the rights to host the Ryder Cup in 2031 or 2035, for which the venue has been shortlisted, with a decision due in early 2022.
