A MAJOR public consultation exercise starts tomorrow (Thursday) into the next stage of development for the Omega South site at Warrington.
Omega Warrington Ltd (OWL) is urging local people to get involved in an online consultation which goes live on Friday or attend one of a number of public exhibitions, the first of which is tomorrow at Great Sankey High School from 4pm-8pm.
The next stage of the development includes new homes, shops, leisure and community uses.
OWL is a joint venture between Miller Developments and KUC Developments Ltd, in partnership with the Homes and Communities Agency and supported by Warrington Borough Council and the Cheshire & Warrington Local Enterprise Partnership. Proposals to be presented for consultation will include 1,100 new homes along with local shops, restaurants and cafes, public house/ bar, a care home and a hotel, supported by extensive landscaping and wildlife habitat preservation.
Extensive transport studies are also being undertaken to inform local and wider improvements. Following public consultation, plans will be developed into an outline planning application to be submitted in late summer.
