We’ve got some more feedback about the improvements we’ve made to services in Higher Folds following our engagement work in February 2019. Click to read the “You Said, We Listened” report below. We’ll be going back out into the community on the morning of 24th September 2019 to speak to residents.
THE DEAL 2030
Back at the end of 2018 we supported Wigan Council to engage with residents about what they want the Borough to be like by 2030. The new DEAL 2030 was launched in July 2019. It reflects all the things that residents said was important to them and the CCG is fully signed up to work with Wigan Council to deliver it!
