Memorandum by Footpath Secretary, Warrington
Group, The Ramblers Association (NT 42)
At the present time great emphasis is being
made, both nationally and locally, regarding footpath networks
in relation to health, environmental and related issues.
We have a good working relationship with the
authorities responsible for implementing the developments previously
agreed in the Warrington New Town areas.
There are, however, anomalies remaining from
earlier New Town developments eg the footpath network around the
Birchwood golf course.
In addition there are many problems in the Warrington
footpath network, not directly connected with New Town developments,
which could be resolved with an overall view taking into consideration
both the New Town areas and the other areas of the Warrington
At this stage could some form of joint initiative
with Warring Borough Council be considered to enable the overall
footpath network achieve its full potential?
