Council building closures since 2010

Lee Jefferson made this Freedom of Information request to Bolton Metropolitan Borough Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Bolton Metropolitan Borough Council,

Please kindly provide a list of council-run buildings (including Libraries, Day Care Centres, Community Centres, Schools and Administrative bases) which your Council has had to close since 2010. Please provide the name of the buildings and the postcodes of the buildings.

Such closures would include those where people have to seek the same type of service from a different location which already exists (or maybe there is no alternative available).

The reason why I require this information is to get a picture of the effect of any Government cuts to council budgets which in turn is forcing councils to find ways to make savings.

These are examples of the type of information I'm looking for but I require the postcode besides the name of the buildings:
