Cheshire East Waste Strategy Review Consultation

The Waste Strategy has been guiding Cheshire East Council’s decisions for the past five years. It is now time to see if it remains relevant and to make sure we are focussed on the right priorities. The strategy was taken to the Council’s March 2020 Cabinet meeting and given approval, but cannot be finalised until you have had your say.

Please submit your views by Monday 2 November

Corporate Plan Engagement

Cheshire East Council has drafted a new draft Corporate Plan for 2020 to 2024. The purpose of this plan is to set out council priorities for the next 4 years.

We would like to know what you think of this plan, and how you think it might be improved.

Engagement closes on Friday 27 November.

The Directions relate to the Nantwich Road, West Street and Hungerford Road areas of Crewe.

 Cheshire East active travel - have a say on your town!

In line with government advice, Cheshire East Council is implementing measures in order to improve active travel in the local area. Nine new schemes will come into effect from the 12 August 2020 as a first phase to improve routes to schools and workplaces, boost social distancing, encourage walking and cycling and improve our town centre environments. Measures will also help to reserve capacity on public transport for those who really need it and should help to reduce congestion. Further schemes will be developed in later phases, following pledged government funding of £619,000.

The move follows recent submissions by town and parish councils and local members of more than 500 local ideas as to what measures may work in their towns and villages.
