WORK to transform Bolton Town Hall is still on track — despite nesting peregrine falcons.
A nest with three peregrine falcon chicks is on top of the town hall and renovation work has been planned so as not to disturb them.
Work is taking place on the southern and eastern side of the building, until the chicks have grown up and flown the nest.
A council spokesman said: “We’ve had regular meetings with our building contractor ISG about the falcons, and the workers on site are very mindful of their presence.
“Our town hall refurbishment programme is still on track and we are currently working on the southern and eastern side of the building, repairing the roof, which does not disturb the chicks.
“The work has been planned in such a way so as not to disturb them.”
