Macclesfield 5 Year Regeneration Strategy Consultation

Cheshire East Council has drafted a 5 year strategy for the regeneration of Macclesfield town centre – we are now consulting on this strategy to get your feedback on it.

This consultation closes at 5pm on Wednesday 15 November 2017.

On Wed 25th October, between 5.30pm and 7pm, a public meeting is to be held at Macclesfield Town Hall, to give those who wish to attend the opportunity to hear a summary of the content of the strategy, and to raise any points about it that they would like to.

Schools Transport Policies Consultation

Cheshire East Council agreed on 10 October 2017 to consult the public on the suite of policies for supporting travel to school.  The proposals would bring the authority in line with many other councils’ locally and across the country, who have already reviewed their school travel in line with national government requirements.
The consultation will make clear what travel support the Council is required to provide and seek views on what, if any, exceptions the Council should consider.  Any proposals for exceptions to be considered need to be supported by a clear rationale.

This consultation closes on Wednesday 6 December 2017

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
