Recent suggestions

Footpaths

Make all property owners/renters cut back any trees,bushes or hedges that are encroaching onto footpaths so reducing the available walk space.

Allotments

I’d like to suggest the provision of more allotments for the Warrington residents. The waiting lists are long and its disheartening being told that the waiting list as of May this year is 7 years. A lot of residents would jump at the chance of having one. With the recent rise of grown your own […]

Connect more, easier

Developing a relationship with the council and the right people is important to teh development of small businesses. Especially those helping communities. There is very little information to support running events, projects that help communities easily accessible online. Other councils have a great archive of resources developed on events managements, etc… WBC could do with […]

Cherry blossom trees

The council removed all trees from Causeway Avenue (and various other streets around Warrington). My suggestion would be to dig up concrete and plant new cherry blossom trees lining the street. This would add character, as well as reduce pollution (visual, noise, and air). I know the residents would be very keen for this to […]

Warrington whitewater park

In school you can learn different languages and study vastly different subjects but you can only try a few sports. Most of which are game and rule based. I didn’t like most of the sports I tried in school but when I stumbled across kayaking, on a school trip to the lake district, I finally […]

Tram lines installed

Create a tram line that runs through Warrington and links to Manchester, this will reduce emissions from vehicles as many people can take one tram rather than 75 cars be on the road why not have 1 tram that can hold 100+ people?

Buses on sunday

I’d like the buses to run later than 5.20 pm it a real struggle for me to get home from work, I’d also like the bus fare to be frozen for 2 more years money is tight for me so I pay 90 pounds per month. I’d like more buses to run around my area […]

If a child is not emotionally stable they won’t benefit from learning anyway so we work as a whole team […]

East Warrington traffic flow

New road linking the M62 to the East Lancashire Road via Holcroft lane. Traffic backs up from 5pm-7pm from the Greyhound all the way to the Spar in Risley. Leaves Culcheth in standstill 5 nights a week and often even worse when there is a crash on the M62 or when the weather is poor. […]

Public transport and cycling

Sticking with a common theme, Warrington has the potential to have a great cycle network but it is very poor at present. Re. Public transport, I wonder if a park and ride close to the motorway junctions of the big radial roads (A49, A56, A50 etc) would be a good idea. If people live near […]

Build an Indoor Arena

What do we know about Warrington? It rains. People like to drink. People like to socialise. People like live music. Warrington is well connected. The centre of the North West. Build it and they will come, an indoor arena similar to the Liverpool Echo or M.E.N.

Town Hall Refurbishment

I went inside the Town Hall recently and I was shocked at the state of disrepair to such an important heritage building. The gates and bank park have been regenerated, care is now needed to restore the Town Hall. More should also be done to encourage the community into the Town Hall building, ‘come and […]

Metrolink

Better public transport to Manchester city centre and the trafford centre – use of the metrolink.

Renovation

Renovate the town centre areas that include building that have been abandoned and I general and new renovation (e.g. Building next to the job centre), the Times Square renovation looks incredible and I think that would be very good to extend and renovate some buildings that are unsightly.

Have a 100 year plan

Longer term planning beyond short term plans based on which party is in power. Allow residents to help shape the place they live in. Warrington is an outstanding place in danger of losing green spaces and heritage which make it a great place. Council should be able to locally implement plans to improve the environment […]

Recreation and homeless

Build a food court. Then with money from rent ho the homeless. Stop building flats and apartments and build some Recreational places like eureka. That dont cost the earth for families to use and will bring others to the town Youth clubs etc give the children free or cheap places to go and learn skills

The center off the north.

In-between Manchester and Liverpool I think we should make Warrington the most modern and people friendly town to improve our overall way off life. Focusing on issues like “traveling, schools and home standards, cleaning the streets and local law enforcement ” to try and mold Warrington into a safe, happy place bringing about the future […]

Cycle improvements

It would be great to see the Transpennine Trail improved in general, but particularly to Altrincham to provide access to the Manchester Metrolink network. The improvements could include proper surfacing and drainage, potentially low level lighting, and greater priority for cyclists at road crossings. It would also be great to see the Bridgewater Canal tow […]

Sort out the bridges and traffic

The traffic come 5 o’clock is horrendous around Knutsford road and Stockton Heath! The bridges need modernising! They’re falling to bits and can’t cope with the flow of traffic. I would also like to point out the growing pest problems on the water fronts that need to be sorted.

Local environment

First of all Warrington town centre and all surrounding areas are a Disgusting. Full of litter. Road signs, bollards, bus stops need a good clean. Roadworks, pot holes, re surfacing for loads of roads need doing. This needs to be maintained regular. I want a town that’s clean with flowers everywhere. Clean the road signs, […]

Local Council

Any funding for improvements should be kept well away from the local council. They habitually get things wrong and waste money for no benefit.

Cheaper bus service

With the extra train stations it’s much easier to get to Manchester and Liverpool. This could destroy the town centre. Better and cheaper buses to the town centre will make it a much more attractive place to go.

Independent Fitness Facilities

Allow for more independent, non-commercial a Fitness Facilities over Commerical. It is incredibly difficult to make any business work these days, but with the amount of backing commercial facilities have, the government needs to support small independent gyms and give the right people managing and running these gyms the financial support they so desperately need […]

NHS

I would like to suggest that the money is put into caring for our most vulnerable including the elderly and disabled. Support has ground to a virtual standstill as funding has been so low. Please reverse the issues caused by previous governments

Public Transport

I get the 62/62a into work every morning, and back into Warrington in the evening, and while I’m extremely grateful that Warrington took on this service after Halton Transport collapsed, its very frustrating to have it running only every half hour. It would be great if this service could be expanded, or at least in […]

Rail link into South Warrington

Refurbish and reopen the redundant rail lines that flow into south Warrington to connect the area to Manchester and Liverpool. One option would be to make use of the existing lines in latchford and to open a station there, with consideration of repairing the viaduct over the ship canal.

Maintain the greenbelt

Maintaining the greenbelt around Warrington is key to sustainability and the need to manage our climate and environment. This includes areas around Warrington, particularly the south west extension causing urban sprawl into Runcorn and the garden suburb in Appleton and the barley castle industrial estate. The census projections, particularly post brexit illustrate that these houses […]

Rewind

Slow down on new developments, we are already over populated. Focus some attention to the roads as some have seen better days. Tidy up, as when driving around town, some of it looks run down and just a mess. Instead of killing all the green space, invest in it. Plant more trees, protect nature. We […]

Green thinking

Warrington is a beautiful place to be having spent 40+ years in Manchester. Develop the brown sites, save the green sites… Give the green sites more cycle paths and open up the rivers and waterways to canal boats and pleasure cruises. Bring in the tourist pounds by making it green and relaxing and simple. People […]

HOUSING FOR VULNERABLE PEOPLE

I suggest Warrington focus on the people who need benefits and housing before even looking at anything else, because there’s simply too many homeless young and vulnerable people living in Warrington, basically waiting for a house but might even die while waiting. These people need support, need to be heard, offered more than just housing […]

One Way System / Ring Road

Creation of new homes is causing a significant population increase and giant retail parks are attracting more people from afar at weekends. The road infrastructure is crippled yet there doesn’t appear to be any significant changes to: A. Implement better public transport links (cycle lanes, trams, etc.) B. Improve traffic congestion with one way systems, […]

Reliable Train Service

I’d invest in the diabolical train service we currently have. My son commutes to Manchester daily and there have been so many cancellations and late trains. Alternatives offered when they are cancelled because parking is not an option in Manchester.

Care for our historic environment

About 10 years ago, Warrington came last out of all UK Council’s in a Royal Society of Arts review of culture and heritage in local authorities. There were questions about the methodology, but even still, some of the few listed buildings in Warrington are in an appalling state. The former church of St Luke is […]

Further investment in Bank Park

With an increase in town centre living it would be brilliant if Bank Park could have some further development, something in line with Victoria Park in Widnes. Reclaiming some land from the park down Crosfields St to have for on road parking would be beneficial, as would making Crosfield St one-way. With regards to the […]

New street signage across the town

New signage for all of the towns street signs and neighbourhoods with the council’s crest would look really smart. Seen elsewhere in Surrey – Elmbridge Borough Council. Warrington’s signs for roads, streets, avenues and neighbourhood signs as you enter Warrington should all be upgraded. This would look really smart and encourage civic pride in our […]

Social care in crisis

I note with interest the Warrington deal boards consideration of a social care skills academy. With my elderly parents requiring care at home and ocasionally in respite I think it’s a good idea to encourage the next generation of social care professionals. It is well documented that social care needs additional support with the workforce […]

Parks and playing fields

Warrington has unique green spaces and parks. But they need maintaining for example, better drainage and more regular maintenance. We want to get children and adults fitter so we need to ensure the parks and playing fields are not overgrown or too boggy.

Rail hub combining both lines

Warrington has the potential to be a major rail nexus. We are home to two railway lines – the West Coast line which runs up to Scotland and down to London, and the Trans Pennine line which runs from Liverpool to Hull. Combining these two lines at a new station would make streamline rail transport […]

Touring youth club

Build communities for our young people and encourage ‘positive play’ by setting up a touring youth club in partnership with Warrington schools. Using a four-week rota, twenty primary/secondary schools could open up their premises to youth workers who could organise activities and events, whilst encouraging them to attend Warrington Youth Club (or the Youth Zone […]

Upper Bridge Street

Can we turn some of the vacant units into art spaces? Galleries? Studios? Can we do this in tandem with university of Chester or via Livewire/ Culture Warrington? Could University of Chester perhaps look at a ‘University in the town’ unit on Bridge Street which showcases cutting edge research or things of interest? Lancaster University […]

Tram links with Manchester

Reduce congestion by moving our public transport forward. Create a tram network that links in to Manchester’s Irlam tram system and Liverpool if they have them. Manchester teams run well, are low priced and reduced the number of vehicles on the roads.

More housing in the centre to protect the greenbelt

Warrington needs more affordable housing, but the council’s plans are to build 7k executive homes and massive distribution warehouses on South Warrington greenbelt land in WA4. This will decimate our greenbelt (important to protect aesthetically and environmentally, and because 4K South Warrington residents have objected to the council’s plans). Instead, this money could be used […]

River Mersey

We have a potentially beautiful river and you can’t get near it to enjoy. We should spend some money on that. And STOP building on green belt land. There is plenty of tatty land or ugly buildings within Warrington that can be used for building.

Social Housing.

Public housing Public housing is a form of housing tenure in which the property is usually owned by a government authority, which may be central or local. Social housing is any rental housing that may be owned and managed by the state, by non-profit organizations. I would like to see the local council ( Warrington […]

Investment Zone

The government has commented on it’s plans to develop “Freeport’s” or “Freezones” which are tax free or effective areas for foreign and regional businesses to build a base and generate the economy in a strong and robust fashion.

Hydrogen fuel cell buses

There are 18 towns and cities throughout Europe, inc UK (Aberdeen and London), with many more planned, which operate hydrogen fuel cell buses. Refer to the attached website https://www.fuelcellbuses.eu/. Warrington should be aggressively progressing the evaluation and introduction of Hydrogen fuel cell buses throughout our town. With one of the recorded worst air pollution rates […]

Free parking

Make all car parks free. This encourages people to come into the town centre and will help businesses. Cheshire Oaks and the Trafford Centre are close by and offer free parking. Why would people pay to come into town when they can go there?

Culture Warrington

The archives of the town need to be promoted better. If people knew it was there they would actively go to find out their family history. Additionally, the museum needs to focus on Warringtonian history. We have bountiful history from the earliest Roman settlement to the modern Burtonwood RAF site. It is essential that this […]
