Current Consultations

Consultations are listed by closing date - those closing soonest are listed at the top.

Homelessness Strategy 2018 - 2021

The Homelessness Act 2002 places a duty upon local authorities to carry out a review of homelessness in their area and formulate and publish a strategy for the future based on the results of that review. The Homelessness Strategy provides direction, a framework and an action plan so that any agency or individual can clearly understand what the Council and our partners are doing to support people in housing need.

Before adopting the Homelessness Strategy the Council is asking for comments and feedback to find out if Cheshire East residents and the Council’s partners agree with the document’s aims and content.

This consultation closes at 5pm on Thursday 14 December 2017

Cheshire East Council Housing Strategy 2018 - 2023 Consultation

Crewe HS2 Masterplan Vision Consultation

In advance of the arrival of HS2 to Crewe in 2027, Cheshire East Council has drafted a "Crewe HS2 Masterplan Vision", setting out how the council intends to capitalise on the opportunity that HS2 and a Crewe hub station provides.

We are now consulting on this Masterplan Vision, to get your views on it.

This consultation closes at 5pm on Friday 12 January 2018.

Pre-Budget Consultation 2018/21

Cheshire East Council has issued its Pre-Budget Consultation setting out proposals for change for the period 2018/19 to 2020/21.

This document provides an opportunity for interested parties to review and comment on the Council’s Budget proposals. The budget proposals described in this consultation document are Council wide proposals and the Council’s intention at this stage is that consultation is invited on the broad budget proposals.The implications of individual proposals may be much wider for individuals affected by each proposal. Where this is the case, the Council intends to undertake full and proper consultation with people who would potentially be affected by individual budget proposals.

Alternatively give feedback by speaking to your local Councillor – visit Find Your Local Councillor for contact details.

You can also send any comments, queries or other responses, such as alternative areas for savings, to the following email address: all responses will be captured and reported to Cabinet Members and Council. When submitting a response or comment, please also include your name, organisation (if applicable) and contact details.

Please respond by 12 January 2018.

After this date, interested parties may still submit comments on the budget up to the Council meeting on Pre Budget Consultation - Nov 2017 - Final Version V5Thursday, 22 February 2018 where the Budget is considered by all Members.

Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA)

A Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA) is an assessment of current and anticipated future needs for pharmaceutical services. Health and Wellbeing Boards have a statutory requirement to produce a PNA for their area, at least every three years, following publication of their first assessment in 2015. The next Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA) for Cheshire East is therefore due by the end of March 2018. NHS England is required to use the finalised PNA to consider applications to open a new pharmacy, move an existing pharmacy or to commission additional services from a pharmacy. 

In Cheshire East, public feedback on current pharmacy provision has been gained through engagement work carried out by Healthwatch in 2016 and by a public survey carried out in May 2017.The findings from this engagement work have been considered, together with information about the pharmaceutical services which are currently provided (including when and where these are available) and planned future changes which could affect the needs for pharmaceutical services, to determine whether provision of these services is sufficient for the local population. 

As part of the development process, we are currently undertaking a formal consultation on the draft Cheshire East PNA 2018, which will be located here until 12th January 2018:

We would welcome your thoughts and comments on this document as it is vital that we produce a PNA that reflects our local needs accurately. 

The consultation is open until Friday 12 January 2018, and you can respond with your feedback either by:

Or by completing the PNA consultation questions (PDF, 235KB) in writing and returning by post to the following address: Public Health Department, Cheshire East Borough Council, Municipal Buildings, Earle Street. Crewe. CW1 2BJ.
