Proposals for new neighbourhood in Warrington to go on display
Exciting plans for a new residential neighbourhood of up to 1,200 new homes in Warrington are to be unveiled.
The proposal includes a comprehensive vision for a proposed new neighbourhood at Peel Hall.
Outline plans will go on display next weekend, and will reveal how the site, which sits south of the M62, will be transformed over 15 years through a phased masterplan.Proposals include up to 1,200 much-needed, high quality and affordable starter homes to the area, along with employment, a local centre and community support facilities to the area.
Investment will also be targeted to the local community, with a range of open space for active sports and areas for informal use being created.
The development proposals are being brought forward by Satnam and will deliver a mix of housing types and sizes, including family homes and affordable and starter homes for first-time buyers trying to get a foot on the housing ladder or key workers such as nurses and teachers.
Significant investment in the community will see new and improved facilities at Windermere Avenue as well as a range of other initiatives to benefit other stakeholders in the area.
The scheme has been designed to be in keeping with the existing character and to respond to identified needs of the area.
Ruth Shepherd, consultation manager and spokeswoman for the project, said: “We are aware the proposals brought forward in 2012 received a mixed reaction, and since then a lot of work has been done behind the scenes to respond to concerns and suggestions made at the time.
“While this proposal includes more homes, the development is comprehensive and will enable local residents and business owners as well as other interested parties to make an informed decision based on a whole masterplan rather than just a part of the vision.
“We are keen to hear from as many people as possible and would encourage those who can attend to come along and see the proposals and vision, and let us know what they think.”The proposals will be on display at The Church of the Resurrection and St Bridget, St Bridget’s Close, Fearnhead, Warrington, WA2 0EW between 11.30am and 5pm on Saturday 23 January. Members of the project team will be on hand to answer questions about the scheme.
Feedback forms will be provided at the event so you can tell us what you think about the proposals, as well as make additional suggestions for the development. Anyone unable to attend can view the proposals and provide feedback online via www.resultscommunications.co.uk/consultations.aspx from 10am the following morning.
