Cheshire East residents are being encouraged to “have their say” on the big issues in their communities.
Their valued views will be included in one of the most influential planning documents in the area, the Community Strategy, which shapes the future for the next fifteen years.
To help members of the public contribute to this consultation, which is being carried out by Cheshire East Council and its partner agencies (see below for the full list) a number of events are taking place in February and March and there is also an opportunity to get involved online.
Councillor David Brown, cabinet member for performance and capacity, said: “We want views about hospitals, schools, transport, libraries, planning and any other services in the public domain that affect people’s lives on a regular basis.
“The aim of this consultation with the people of Cheshire East is to ensure that we are planning ahead in ways which meet the needs of the people living here right now.
“We hope the views will give us a valuable insight in to how life is now for people and how we can, together, shape our communities for a better future.”
