Plans for new life at Fordton to be discussed
8:18am Friday 1st March 2013 in News
PLANS for a supermarket, shops and pub on the former Fordton Leisure Centre site will be discussed by councillors next week.
The leisure centre, off Winwick Road, closed last year when the new Orford Park facility opened.
Now plans for a widescale development of the empty site are set to be discussed by Warrington Borough Council’s development management committee.
The proposal includes the supermarket, two shops, a pub/restaurant and a drive through coffee shop and will be debated on Thursday in the Parr Hall.
Three neighbours have complained saying the development would lead to far greater traffic problems than the previous leisure centre.
Planning officers have recommended that the application be approved.
