1997 Oct 24th, Plans to refurbish one of Bolton's largest mills owned by mail order company, Great Universal Stores, are to be scrapped.
Red-faced council officers had to break the news to company bosses recently after realising that a grant promised under a specially-financed European mill enhancement programme failed to qualify. GUS were told that their bid to spruce up their offices at the Lorne Street Mill, Farnworth would not get cash funding. At a recent meeting of the Planning and Environment Committee, Bolton's white collar workers admitted a mix up. Bolton Council now has £130,000 to spend on improving mills in the borough benefiting small businesses. The mix-up came when officers thought the European Development Regeneration Funding was for general use. But after agreeing the grant allocation, they suddenly realised that the cash was only to be used to benefit small businesses. Officers told planning councillors that GUS was not classed as a small or '"micro enterprise."
