The Role

Warrington is one of the most successful towns in the country, regularly being ranked as one of the best places in the UK for economic performance and quality of life for its residents. It is a key gateway, centrally placed within the Northwest of England at the heart of a highly connected network of Motorways, mainline rail and waterways – key ingredients for its economic success.

The Council has an ambitious growth and regeneration programme that recognises the importance of the town’s historic past and responds to Warrington’s distinctiveness, which includes its unique pattern of green spaces, its New Town legacy and green belt setting.
