The Parish Council have informed the head of the external Creamfields security operation about shortcomings observed on Thursday and they are being investigated.
Creamfields advise that there is Security patrol the perimeter in vehicles and there are 6 patrol/ response teams active at any time. The Creamfields staff manning various locations are mostly Traffic Marshals. Warrington road is planned to remain open to non-festival traffic this year with Marshals redirecting any waifs and strays. Previous traffic cone set up has been decided against by WBC during traffic planning apparently as it can create dangerous/ frustrating traffic build ups as was reported Thursday afternoon.
Warrington road car park for early campers will be full now so all festival traffic will be directed to South car parks off Daresbury lane via Daresbury official access route meaning Hatton shouldn’t experience festival related traffic tomorrow onwards. Only potential situation Friday is a ‘relief valve’ protocol if traffic backs up to A56 some will be marshaled via summer/ pilmoss lane round to daresbury lane. Warrington road car park vehicles will be directed out via Park lane splash on Monday.
The Parish Council remain in close contact with Festival Security and Event Organisers. All issues will be reinforced during debrief sessions so that they can be fed into future planning.
