Help make our nightlife better for all

sh Published: Tuesday, 25th September 2018

Do you enjoy a night out in Warrington? We need your views on our night time economy and how it can be improved.

Warrington Borough Council want to ensure that we have a safe, welcoming and vibrant night time economy that appeals to everyone. To achieve this, we want to develop a strong cultural offer and encourage responsible businesses to invest in our town. 

We also need our licensing policies to consider local need and reflect the views of local residents. We’re asking residents to complete a short survey about our current night time economy and how it can be improved.

You can get involved in the following ways:

Public Protection Unit, Families and Wellbeing
Warrington Borough Council
New Town House
Warrington
WA1 2NH

The closing date is 25 October 2018.

Cllr Judith Guthrie, executive board member for environment and public protection, said “The survey is asking local residents to comment on their experiences of nightlife across the town, with a focus on the cultural quarter, Bridge Street and Stockton Heath. We want to find out how people feel about the numbers and types of bars and restaurants available and any effect that these premises, and the people who use them, have on the local community.”

“There is also an opportunity to comment on the current opening times of pubs, bars, clubs and restaurants and to let us know about the types of establishments they would like to see open across the borough.” 

“The information we gather from this consultation will help us to shape the future of our night time economy. It will also give us an important insight into peoples’ views and aspirations for the borough’s nightlife and how we can continue to improve it.”

If you have any concerns or questions about the consultation or require the questionnaire in another language or format, including large print, Braille, audio or British Sign Language or simply require assistance please call 01925 443322.
