Great Sankey Parish Council have been working with Warrington Borough Council on proposals to improve the field at Parsonage Way, which fronts onto Liverpool Road.
Warrington Borough Council was engaged to undertake a public consultation on behalf of Great Sankey Parish Council to find out if residents were in favour of proposals to improve the field. These would include installing a dwarf wall and railings, improving access to the field by centralising the pedestrian access with a new focal ornate gate, installation of a children’s play area with an access path, and improving the drainage of the field to allow it to be used all year round. Planting as part of the design will be made at designated locations on the field.
The consultation has now ended, and the results have shown that one hundred and ninety-five residents took part, with 74% in favour of the proposals. The full results from the consultation will be published on the Parish Council’s website.
Peter Watson, Chairman of Great Sankey Parish Council said
We are delighted with the level of response from residents, the Parish Council took over the lease from Warrington Borough Council two years ago with the view to help protect and improve our green spaces. We will continue to work with Warrington Borough Council to apply for funding to implement the project. We want the field at Parsonage Way to remain as a green space that is valued as an asset to the community and is accessible for all users.
The Parish Council will keep residents informed as the project develops.
Great Sankey Parish Council operates 5 Community Centres - Bewsey Barn, Hood Lane, Hood Manor, Tim Parry and Whittle Hall. Following a survey of the the condition of the centres, the Parish Council has committed to a long-term refurbishment programme of repairs and redecoration.
