St Helens and Warrington Road proposal will harm farmland in Green Belt

CPRE Cheshire and Lancashire are united with local residents' groups in battling plans by St Helens Council for a road linking vast swathes of countryside and the former Parkside Colliery site. 

 We agree the brownfield part of the site of the should be brought forward as identified for a regionally important Strategic Rail Freight, to take freight off our road network, but disagree entirely that farmland should be sacrificed in the way proposed.
