Sandymoor is a civil parish in Runcorn, Halton, Cheshire, England, with a population of approximately 2,616.[2] The majority of housing in Sandymoor was built post-1990 and the parish was formed in 2008 by the Halton (Parish Electoral Arrangements) Order 2008.[3] Sandymoor lies approximately 4 miles east of Runcorn town centre, 5 miles south-west from Warrington town centre and 2 miles north of the M56 motorway.

Sandymoor is an affluent parish, having been ranked among the 10% least deprived LSOAs (Neighbourhoods) in the country in the Department for Communities and Local Government's 'English indices of Deprivation'.[4]

Sandymoor has been undergoing rapid development in recent years, with construction of new homes anticipated to be complete by 2019.[5]

Further improvements have been discussed, including opening a primary school and creating a station on the Chester-Manchester railway line which runs along the eastern edge of the parish.[citation needed]
