Update on Parsonage Way Field

Great Sankey Parish Council are delighted to be able to announce that they have entered into partnership with Warrington Borough Council to deliver improvements to Parsonage Way Field.

During last August and September, Warrington Borough Council conducted a public consultation on behalf of the Parish Council. The consultation outlined proposed improvements, which at the time included improved drainage, a new boundary wall with entrance, a path, seating, landscaping and a children’s play area. One hundred and eighty-four residents took part in the consultation and 74% were in favour of the scheme.

Peter Watson, Chairman of Great Sankey Parish Council said, “Over the past ten months the Parish Council have been actively seeking funding opportunities to help to deliver the proposed scheme. This has proven quite a challenge as funding streams that were once available have now ended.”

“The Parish Council are committed to delivering an enhanced community asset, ensuring that our green spaces are welcoming and able to be accessed by all residents. With this vision in mind, we are very pleased that Warrington Borough Council have agreed to enter into partnership with us and we hope to start work early next year”

The improvements will include drainage to the field, a new boundary wall with entrance, a tarmac path to create better access for all, seating and planting. The funding secured does not include play equipment at this time and plans for this have been put on hold.

“We’re all now looking forward to seeing the transformation of the field into a valued green space where residents will have better access and be able to enjoy the planting” said Peter Watson
