Posted 17th October 2012. Many of us have received a letter and related map from Warrington Borough Council re the 'access only' prohibition for Old Alder Lane. The Council, in trying to reach an amicable solution, have intimated that they may be willing to amend the initial proposal.
There would be no prohibition on 'our patch' i.e. from Watery Lane/Mill Lane to the access to Sankey Valley Park at the first bend - the restriction would apply to the remaining section of Old Alder Lane towards The Fiddle in' Bag pub. A positive reply to the proposal would satisfy our photographic requirements even though I cannot possibly see how the problems of anti-social behaviour and fly tipping would be overcome. Also, according to the letter received, the recipient's positive reply would negate his/her formal objection to the initial prohibition.
The final date for receipt of the formal reply, in a pre-paid envelope, is October 31st. Initial reactions only, indicate a positive response.
