Heritage, Sporting Excellence, Leisure and the Visitor Economy

May 2020

Peel L&P is promoting the development an international championship-grade golf course and leisure resort as part of plans to restore the historic Hulton Park Estate .

The resort has been specifically designed to host the world’s largest golf events, such as Ryder Cup and other major tournaments. The provision of new homes would also help to meet Bolton’s housing needs and provide affordable housing in the area. Reports prepared by leading ecologists and heritage experts showed that the proposals would have a positive impact on the site. A socio-economic impact study shows that the overall impact of Hulton Park and the Ryder Cup programme would be £1.2 billion, bringing huge benefits to Bolton, Greater Manchester and the North West in terms of skills, participation, health development and tourism as well as securing future major sporting events. Following a public inquiry, the plans were given the green light by Government in August 2020.
