TEMPORARY barriers have been installed at Peel Hall Park in response to concerns.

Councillors Nathan Sudworth, Hilary Cooksey and John Kerr-Brown – who serve Poplars and Hulme – recently invited senior officers from Warrington Borough Council to Peel Hall Park to discuss their concerns about large vehicles accessing the fields.

In response, the council has now installed temporary measures ‘that will go towards securing’ Peel Hall Park.

The concrete barriers are a temporary measure and will only be in place until future works, including height restrictions for the car park, are put in place.

The works will form part of a proposed scheme to enhance the park and improve access in the long-term for residents.

Cllr Sudworth said: “In response to concerns raised with us by local residents, myself, Cllr Cooksey and Cllr Kerr-Brown asked for the temporary measures to be put in place.

“We hope this will help to secure the park from large vehicles while custom solutions, including height barriers, are arranged.

“We are working on a number of projects across Poplars and Hulme to improve our community green spaces and we fully intend Peel Hall Park to be a part of these proposed schemes.
