Proposed regeneration of play and recreation facilities at Birchwood Forest Park
Over the last year, the Town Council has been working towards presenting proposals for a significant regeneration project to enhance Birchwood Forest Park.
Following an extensive community consultation and working in partnership with Warrington Borough Council, landowners of the park, documentation has been prepared and an application for grant funding has been submitted to WREN.
We would like to thank everyone who took the time to respond to the consultation. It is very important that the community's views are presented and considered when finalising proposals for such a sizeable project.
We are hoping to hear whether or not our bid has been successful in Spring 2014. As soon as we have news we will update you here!

In addition there are three part-time office staff who, together with local Councillors, deal with matters of concern to our residents on a daily basis.
We also employ the services of a part-time Facilities Caretaker/Cleaner who takes bookings for the Community Meeting Room and keeps the Town Council's premises clean and tidy.
