Warrington East Phase 2 Transport Project - 05/04/2018

The Council now has funding in place to undertake the next Phase of the improvement works along Birchwood Way. This involves the widening of the carriageway in some areas including the Blackbrook Avenue Junction. Detailed information on the project including construction plans can be found at

The improvements works at the Blackbrook Way junction impinge on land classed as Playing Fields by Sports England (in their role to protect playing field land) and under the School Standards and Framework Act 1998 the Council are therefore required to consult with any key people involved which includes the School, parents and students.

The works require a thin narrow strip of land (some 70 meters long) which currently lies within the school playing field adjacent to Birchwood Way as illustrated in red on the attached plan. This small piece of land forms part of a larger area of land which is leased to the school by the Borough Council.

In compliance with s77 of the School Standards and Framework Act 1998 we therefore write to advise you as to the potential loss of this playing field land. If you have any comments, objections or require any further information please contact us at
