To: Miller Homes and Halton Borough Council


To stop the development of Prescot Road playing fields by Miller Homes. To safeguard the borough's playing fields for future generations.

Why is this important?

This land is extremely important in terms of making up part of the sporting pitch provision and the green space of Widnes. We believe that it must remain so.

This land is designated as sporting/recreational Green Space in Halton Borough Council's Local Plan, as such any permission to build a housing estate on it should be refused.

We have lost many of our green areas to housing development due to government planning laws. Housing development of this land would have a hugely detrimental impact on people living in Hough Green and the surrounding area.

We urge Miller Homes to consider the local community and reconsider their intentions to submit a planning application for housing development on much needed green space.

We would urge Halton Borough Council to do everything in their power to stop any part of this designated sporting/recreational/green space land being developed into yet another housing estate, should Miller Homes submit an application.

Today we met with Council offers to discuss the proposed development of Prescot Road fields. It was confirmed that the land is not land that is designated as land to be developed. There also other legal issues that need to be looked into. This gives us confidence that this proposed development by Miller Homes can be defeated.
