Something’s stirring in central Warrington – and it’s not just a free hot pot supper.

Published: Monday, 8th October 2018

Warrington Borough Council & partners want to work with local residents to develop & deliver a ‘masterplan’ for central Warrington. Work starts Tuesday (9 October, 6pm) at Orford community hub.

As well as an opportunity to enjoy a free hot pot supper, it’s a chance too for residents to find out more about what’s in store and get involved from the very beginning.
 
Councillor Tony Higgins, executive board member for communities, says:
“We are determined that people who live in central Warrington have more access to the economic opportunities that already exist in our borough, plus those opportunities that will be created on right on their doorsteps in years to come through the major developments taking place in and around our town centre.
 
“We want to deliver a better deal for central Warrington, but we don’t pretend to have all the answers. Some of the best ideas, the most creative solutions, will come from local people and communities, so if you live within a mile or two of the town centre we’d love to see you on Tuesday evening.”
 
The masterplan process is being driven by the multi-agency Central Neighbourhood Area Renewal Team and covers the following council wards: Bewsey & Whitecross; Fairfield & Howley; Latchford East; Latchford West; Orford and Poplars & Hulme.

Anybody wanting to attend Tuesday’s event should email rwhitworth@warrington.gov.uk

More direct engagement with local residents is scheduled to begin in November, and throughout the masterplan process local residents will have the chance to feed in ideas, review proposals and get involved with the development of projects that matter to them.
