The Central 6 Masterplan project aimed to develop a long-term masterplan for the whole of Warrington’s central area, fully informed and led by the community and residents’ experiences and ideas about what would improve the area and the opportunities for those who live there.
In total, events were held at over 30 locations and over 2,500 residents engaged with the process and fed their ideas in to the plan.
You can read the Central 6 final consultation report alongside the stage 1 analysis, to get find more detail about how the vision for the Central 6 masterplan was developed, and what our future plans are.
There are now a series of projects being rolled out as part of the Central 6 masterplan. This includes:
£550k of Home Office funding was received which will help to cut crime in Bewsey and Whitecross.
The money will go towards measures proven to cut crime. These include an individual security assessment for every property and improving measures where required. It will also involve the roll-out of Cheshire police’s successful Operation Shield in the area – a DNA property marking exercise which has reduced burglary by up to 83 per cent in other areas of Cheshire.
There will also be simple changes to the design of streets such as increased street-lighting and the installation of CCTV alongside intensive work by Local Officers with the community to develop Neighbourhood Watch schemes for every street.
The Bewsey and Whitecross area was selected by the PCC and Warrington local policing unit for the funding as it best fit the outlined criteria and provided the greatest opportunity to invest and realise benefit for the community.
