Partington

Peel Holdings redesign of Partington

As part of the 550 new apartments set to be built on land off Lock Lane, Peel are to redesign Partington with a huge list of changes, that will improve the area, although sadly will not introduce road infrastructure or increase the amount of shopping and healthcare facilities.

The green loop is a great proposal for the village, the following proposed improvements are to be made:

Canal Tow Path from Lock Lane to Red Brook
• Improved public bridleway
• Flowering meadows
• Improved woodland
• New hedgerow
Lock Lane to Coroners Wood East
• Widened and improved public footpath
within Coroners Wood
• New informal footpath through
recreation ground
• Selective thinning and enrichment of trees
within Coroners Wood
• Improved wildlife habitats including log
piles, bird and bat boxes
Red Brook Nature Trail
• Widened and improved public footpath
• Existing woodland maintained and
enriched
• Proposed wildflower grassland
• Improved wildlife habitats including log
piles, bird and bat boxes
• Dipping platforms and interpretive boards
providing an educational resource
Broadoak School South
• New / widened existing public footpath
• New hedgerow
• Maintained and enriched young plantation
• Proposed native tree and shrub planting
• Improved wildlife habitats including log
piles, bird and bats boxes
Cross Lane East
• Planting of additional large trees
• Existing plantation enriched and managed
• Improved wildlife habitats including log
piles, bird and bat boxes

The linking of paths will be as follows:

• A waymark and pleasant roadside
eastern link 2000m long connecting the
north and south off-road sections of the
Green Loop
Manchester Road to the ship canal
• New footpath connection between
Manchester Road and Ship Canal
• Improved public footpath along canal
bank
• New hedgerow planting
• 500m of improved footpath links
connecting the canal bank, Scroggins
Lane, Hall Lane and River Lane

Other improvements like new fencing and the removal of unattractive features in the area have been mentioned, new trees and street furniture will be introduced in the proposals.

Peel have been in various meetings with council officials, at the last planning meeting we are aware about, the group had extended its time to get themselves sorted out and start the process of building the development and transforming Partington.

In addition to this we have learned today that some new infrastructure will be built on Oak Road Park alongside the slight improvements already made to the play area.
