Consultation - Birchwood Pinchpoint Scheme

Warrington Borough Council has secured Growth Deal funding from the government and the Cheshire and Warrington Local Enterprise Partnership to deliver a series of transport improvements along the A574 Birchwood Way corridor in Birchwood.

The Borough Council is proposing to deliver junction improvements at Oakwood Gate “The dog bone” and Moss Gate roundabouts and provide a new bus only link between Ordnance Avenue and Faraday Street.

These transport improvements have been proposed to reduce the high levels of congestion at these junctions, improve journey times along the A574 corridor, and improve bus journey times to the Birchwood Park area.

The Borough Council would like to know what you think of the proposed improvements and you can do this by completing the:

Birchwood pinchpoint scheme online questionnaire

 Grass Cutting

The Town Council has recently been receiving a number of complaints about the reduced frequency of grass cutting throughout Birchwood.

Members have met with Officers of Warrington Borough Council regarding this matter.  The Borough Council has put information on its website to inform residents about its changes to the grass cutting services:  www.warrington.gov.uk/homepage/334/street_services_and_grass_cutting_in_warrington

 UPDATE: 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 was prepared and an application for grant funding has been submitted to WREN.

At the May Town Council meeting, outgoing Chair, Councillor Pauline Nelson, was delighted to be able to announce that WREN has awarded the Town Council and the local community funding of £50,000 toward the costs of refurbishing the play and recreation facilities within Birchwood Forest Park.

The Town Council and Warrington Borough Council (the landowner) are also providing significant amounts of capital towards the project; the first phase of which will see overgrown areas thinned out, improvements to the play equipment and play area and the installation of some informal fitness equipment.

The Town Council is hoping that in future years we may also be able to look at improvements to the informal kickabout pitch and the skateboard/BMX area.

We are hoping the project will commence as soon as is possible, particularly as this year sees the 30th anniversary of the park.
