Along with the development of The Hub, there are a number of regeneration projects in Bewsey and Dallam which LiveWire’s partners, Warrington Borough Council and Torus are delivering.
Harrison Square development
Warrington Borough Council and Torus (Helena Partnerships/Golden Gates Housing Trust) have created plans for a residential social housing scheme on Harrison Square. The scheme will also see a much needed pharmacy located on vacant land immediately opposite Harrison Square and will provide a new retail facility for the existing shop unit and post office.
The redevelopment of Harrison Square had been a long held ambition for the community who called for the demolition of the derelict shops and for new retail provision to be sited in the area for a number of years.
Work at the site at Harrison Square will start in 2016 on the development which will include 18 two bedroom houses, six two bedroom bungalows and two new retail units.
Grey to Green project
Over the next few years, Warrington Borough Council is going to deliver regeneration in Bewsey and Dallam that will improve the physical environment of the whole estate.
The Grey to Green initiative is an exciting programme of environmental improvement and regeneration works to be implemented over the next 18 months.
There have been a number of improvements already in place across the area, such as:
- new play facility adjacent to St. Mark’s Church
- new perimeter fencing and tree planting to Dallam Recreational Ground
- improvement works at Molyneux Triangle
- new street lighting programme for Bewsey and Dallam
- path re-surfacing work around the bungalows in Bewsey
- The building of the new MUGA (multi-use play area) on Dallam playing fields
- Improvements to the pitches on Dallam playing fields
- Works to improve Bewsey Meadows
Over the next 18 months will see further improvements like:
