Warrington councillors back vision for Victoria Park

Plans to redevelop Victoria Park in Warrington have been given the go-ahead by Warrington Borough Council's executive board.

Members of Warrington Borough Council's executive board backed the new Project Victoria Park scheme.

Plans include the construction of a neighbourhood hub, a sports village centred around the current athletics track, ornamental gardens and leisure areas.

A consultation took place in the summer with more than 1,000 responses received. Now council officers will carry out more work before a final plan is developed in the summer of 2010.

Support and funding for the project and its future delivery is expected to be received from a range of project partners and stakeholders including external funding and grant awarding organisations.
