Warburton Hey Redevelopment

Since Helena held their first consultation sessions before Christmas on 2 and 4 December 2008, which many of you attended, they have been working with their architects and recently appointed development partner Bramall Construction to work up the concept design originally displayed for a new development. They say that In so doing they have tried to take on board as many of your comments as possible.

As promised Helena are now ready to carry out our Second Stage Consultation following which they will consider the variety of comments received from all interested parties and agencies, including tenants and members of the general public.

As before this second and final event will be held at Rainhill Labour Club on the following two dates:

Tuesday 10th March 2009 or Thursday 12th March 2009

The club will be open between 1pm and 7pm

During the event, you will be able to meet the Architects and other people involved, look at the detail proposals for the site including how the development will look, and floor plans for each dwelling type.

Raise any issues, concerns or suggestions you might have. They will also be able to give you more up to date information including things like the number of homes that will be built as part of the new development. The comments received will be given full consideration in carrying out the review of the final designs prior to submission for Planning Approval.

Please drop in and see for yourself on any of the above days and at any time during the above period; on the way to the shops or when picking the children up from school or just after work. You may live opposite or have a business nearby and just want to know some basic details, so call in and find out more.

  • The events were well attended and a number of issues were raised by concerned residents. Two of the most worrying issues were identified by residents living close to the old "Coach and Horses" pub.

    At the corner opposite the old pub, the architects wanted a 4 storey build to highlight the development. Residents thought that it would be an overbearing structure. There was also a legitimate concern that too much traffic to the new development would access via St Anns Place.

    Helena brought those comments back to their board meeting and made the following desisions:

    1 - Direct the architects to abandon the proposed 4 storey at that location and replace with a 3 storey build.

    2 - Re-jig the internal road network for the site to reduce the traffic flows entering via St Anns Place.
