200,000 secured for new Forest Park

23 September 2009

The development of a Forest Park for the area of nature reserves, green spaces and bird-watching locations that lie between Runcorn-Widnes bridge and Warrington has taken further strides forward with £200,000 funding secured.


Partnership working with The Mersey Forest

A successful joint application between Warrington Borough Council and Halton Borough Council to the Access to Nature fund will enable greater interaction between the communities and the nature on their doorstep.


The principle aim is to use the Mersey Estuary to encourage more people to understand, appreciate and enjoy the outdoors. The funding will be particularly targeted at engaging secondary school pupils and the over-60s.


Complementary initiatives

Other initiatives are also taking shape which will be complementary to the Forest Park. The Environment Agency is part of the partnership developing the Mersey Life project, as is Cheshire Wildlife Trust with their Living Landscapes. Consultants have been looking at the creation of a greenway along the Manchester Ship Canal and further work is on-going regarding way marking, signage and interpretation.
