At last work is to start on the very first development in the Master Plan for the Page Hall area.
An area at the bottom of Wade Street, which is the nearest green space to the terraced houses of Page Hall, is going to be revamped. It has been three years in the planning which involved officers from the East Regeneration Team and local residents.
There will be seating for parents who drop their children off at Owler Brook School, there will be seven new trees planted and the whole area will be landscaped, making it a friendlier place. There will be new lighting and better pathways across the green providing easier access to Wincobank Hill. The existing sub station will be screened off by metal panels that have been designed by pupils of Fir Vale School.
