  1. It's a long time since I was on here and I'd like to say that it was easy to pitch up again but found it very difficult to get to grips with the format upgrade since last I was here. The Urban Splash 48 apartment enabling development related to the Bewsey Old Hall has been ongoing since 2005 but only gained final approval by Government Inspector in 2009. Since then the site has been a shambles but latest activity has resulted in a local footpath described in the approval as a public right of way has been closed. The footpath is a continuation of Bewsey Farm Close, that's adjacent to the Maltings, and gives access to Bewsey Park and also to Ladies Walk Wood. It was highlighted on Warrington World Wide on Tuesday. Charles Bluck is gathering witness statements fron people who can say that they used the footpath regularly so it can be included in the WBC inventoryof footpaths. Urban Splash were the original developer but this changed ? I hope that forumeers will support this foot path, which was laid by Warrington New Town in the 70's and has been in continuous use ever since, by contacting Mr Bluk as listed below. Needless to say the longer and more often you have used it the better.you have used it the better. Contact is: cbluk@warrington.gov.uk
  2. During the week letter boxes in Orford were stuffed with leaflets advising the a waste disposal site is to be opened up on the old gas works site off the A49 The site will take black bin and green bin waste. no further information. Can't be true surely? Fake News perhaps?
  3. Looks as if its full stink ahead as planning application to fence off the area has been approved yesterday

  5. Light pollution from domestic premises can be a "statutory nuisance" (act 2005) covered by Environmental Services street lighting was exempted from the act. Complainants have to rely on lack of best practise by council to gain any satisfaction.
  6. The lighting project is completed in Old Hal and the "light trespass" from light spill/back light is horrendous across my garden and bedrooms . Is anyone else experiencing this problem like this?
  7. This guy's face appears whenever fiscal wizadry hits the front page of local rags or WBC once again pass out the begging bowl to squeeze more cash for less from the rate payers.
  8. I see that both Warrington MP's have expressed concern at the prospect of WBC's intentions of speculating in a private bank. Further reading of their proposal reveals that there will not be a boardroom position for WBC as they have no one who meets the qualifications required. This begs the question of why Mr Russ Bowden has been able to push this proposal through the council exec ???? There is no guarantee that the MSE's who might benefit will be in Warrington, so any job opportunitied might likely be somewhere else in the country. This decision to go ahead with the inveetment stinks. Perhaps someone with the know how could "crowd fund" a legal challenge to this scary idea
  9. I read in Warrington Worlwide that WBC are enthusiastically engaged in becoming a part owner of a private bank which will require an investment of 30 million pounds. Why ??????????? If they have a cool ten million pounds a year to speculate I suggest it would be better invested in maintaining services to the community which are becoming less and more expensive year on year. How come they can find such amounts of money when they are always moaning about cuts of funding from central government. Boris 1066
  10. Can someone illuminate me as to why perfectly satisfactory street lights are being replaced in Callands and Old Hall ??
  11. I've still restrained myself from reading previous posts. I'm sick of the EU, I don't care what a lame duck American President, whose achieved very little, apart from his golf handicap, has to say on a matter that has got absolutely nothing to do with the USA. Vote OUT and get our country back from a bunch of unelected officials.
  12. I haven't read any of the previous postings but really anoyed at the scary stuff the Government shoved through my door this morning. I consider it junk mail but on this occasion I have an address I can send back to. Joanna George, FREEPOST RSB-XRZT-ZTXE The Consevative Party Foundation, 30 Millbank, London SW1 4DP
  13. We've had the Warrington Tyre Wall controversy and now welcome to the Gulliver's World Wire Wall saga !! Under the guise of protecting woodland from, walkers/local residents, Gullies are in process of erecting an 8 foot fence around a plot of land owned by them adjacent to their theme park. The construction is at present stalled due to the absence of planning permission and is under an enforcement notice. Half of the woodland was cleared last year and the woodland authorities notified and a 10 year maintenance plan agreed for the remainder. The question arises of why it's necessary to build an 8 foot fence around the entire area? Wouldn't a picket fence do the job or is it because the area involved was designated as a caravan site and camping area when WBC/Warrington & Co/ Gulliver's World colluded to turn Gullies fiefdom into a Regional Destination ? The scheme was passed by the lick spittle councillors and passed to the executive. Elections intervened the cash dried up but the plan still lies with the executive who "are minded to consider element in the future" Is it possible that elements of the SVRP are still on the books? Perhaps we could have a Steve Parrish comment. That's if he still reads this whinge column ***!!!!
  14. I had a load of conifers trimmed and the contractor said that they accumulate all the green waste and sell it as biomass for power stations.
  15. It's good news that action is taken ahead of the game . It's a pity that further up the estuary at Sankey Valley Park, Gullivers World theme park are destroying acres of woodland. See active threads on "Save Sankey Valley " Facebook page.
