UPDATE 3: Wednesday 10th May.

We are pleased to inform you that we are at last getting somewhere with this project.
We were informed at a meeting last week with Wigan Council Officers, Al and Al Creative Directors of Haigh Hall, and Keith Bergman the Manager of Haigh Woodland Park that discussions have taken place with the Rights of Way Officer and early progress has been made to finally get this up and running.
It was agreed that we will have a joint working group meeting with representatives from interested parties: Haigh Parish Council, Haigh Hall Heritage Matters (formerly Friends of Haigh Hall Heritage and Open Access for All), Al and Al and the Haigh Horse-riding Community.
The meeting has been arranged for Saturday 13th May, and will be in the form of a 'walking meeting' within the plantations, looking at a possible route.
We will keep you updated on further progress.

UPDATE 2: Sunday 12th March

Good News. The FB group Haigh Hall Matters (formerly Friends of Haigh Hall Heritage and Open Access for All) are supporting this and have scheduled it for discussion at their monthly meeting with Wigan Council Officers and Directors tomorrow.

Latest Update on the Bridleway for Haigh Project

A Teams meeting between Haigh Parish Council and Wigan Council Officers took place virtually on 13th December, when the Bridleway For Haigh project was raised and well received.
A detailed report written by the Haigh Parish Community working group, for consideration by the officers was submitted to Wigan Council after the meeting, and then distributed by the Director to the team currently responsible for the management of Haigh Country Park.

Unfortunately, the wheels of progress seem to turn very slowly in local government and we still await to hear the outcome of the meeting.

Lots of horse riders have put forward some good suggestions, ideas, and reasons why there is an urgent need for this to be addressed.

Haigh Parish Council will continue to keep the Haigh communities informed and as soon as a response is received we can move the project forward.
