It’s Thursday 22nd June and the latest Warrington / Knutsford Guardian is out

Gareth Dunning is Deputy Editor and highlighted some stories you need to know about.

We won, it’s scrapped

Headlining the paper this week is the story of local campaigners celebrating the removal of Central 6 Streets Plan in Westy.  The controversial road plan undertaken by Warrington Borough Council has been removed, almost a year to the day that it was first installed, causing traffic chaos and pollution in the area.

The Low Traffic Neighbourhood Scheme (LTN) had aimed to reduce vehicle traffic and improve conditions for those walking, cycling and living along the streets – but the scheme has now been scrapped, much to the delight of campaingers and local residents.

New hope for Grappenhall Hall & Old Rectory

Councillors have been working with Warrington Borough Council to find solutions to the long-standing issues relating to the Old Rectory and Grappenhall Hall School site.

Two outline proposals for the redevelopment of the school site and the creation of a community park are being developed ready for consultation.

There is a third proposal for a new school – but this is still in very early stages.

A comprehensive consultation process on proposals for the site is planned and it is hoped that these will be advanced sufficiently for this to take place in the autumn.
