  1. Bolton council normally make a mess of things. Something over the years you get tired of. New “A” grade offices… wHY??? They are not needed or required. Plenty of empty office space already all over town. Why not spend money on making the empty properties more attractive… Be it shops, offices or residential.
    Just a bunch of money and time wasters.
