Cheshire East Council Consultations

Welcome to Cheshire East Council's Consultation portal - please browse our current consultations below.

Current consultations

Safety of women in public places survey

Cheshire East Council believes that each of us has the right to expect to be able to go about our daily lives without fear of intimidation, harassment and violence. Walking alone in public places shouldn’t be a danger to anyone.

A commission has been established with our partners to improve safety for women across the Borough. This survey aims to understand if and why women don’t feel safe, and whether that is specific to particular areas of the Borough or more widespread.

Please complete the survey by 4 July 2021.

Trial of a new, app-based transport service around South-West Nantwich

Cheshire East Council has received funding from the Department for Transport (DfT) as part of the Rural Mobility Fund to plan and deliver a Demand Responsive Transport (DRT) service within Cheshire East, that will operate over a three-year trial period.

DRT services are flexible services that respond to local demand and can change routing and scheduling depending on when and where services are needed.

Your feedback will help us learn more about your transport needs, which will inform any decisions about how the proposed DRT service is delivered.

Please submit your response by 4 July 2021.

Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Strategy Consultation

Cheshire East Council has drafted a Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Strategy, which it is now carrying out a 12 week consultation on.

Please submit your response by 14 July 2021.

Telecare Charging Consultation 2021

Cheshire East Council is proposing that people aged 85 and over, and who are also living alone, should pay £5 per week for the telecare service. This is the same charge that other Cheshire East Council telecare users pay.

People who cannot afford to pay this charge will continue to receive the service for free, subject to a financial assessment process. A person is also able to cancel their telecare service at any point.

Paper copies of this consultation material are available in council offices and libraries in the larger Cheshire East towns for you to complete. Paper copies have also been circulated to all council Telecare users.

Please give your feedback by Thursday 22 July 2021.

Flowerpot Junction Improvement Scheme

Cheshire East Council is planning to make improvements to the Flowerpot junction in Macclesfield. The improvements will increase capacity at the junction to ease existing levels of congestion, in anticipation of planned developments around the town.

We have launched a public engagement exercise to seek feedback on our proposals. We will review all feedback once the engagement period closes and look to take on board any comments where possible.

Please give your feedback by midnight on 25 July 2021.

On-going consultations

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

We are looking to make the towns in Cheshire East more accessible by improving walking and cycling facilities. These improvements are taking place in two tranches (or phases).

The consultation on the Tranche 2 proposals within Crewe, Macclesfield, Congleton and Wilmslow and the update to the Tranche 1 scheme proposed in Sandbach is now closed. Your feedback on the schemes is being collated and analysed and will be made available on the councils Active Travel webpage. A consultation report will be produced on the Tranche 2 schemes which will help to inform how the Department of Transport funding can be best spent within Cheshire East. The consultation ran from 3 February 2021 to 11:59pm on 3 March 2021.

The consultation for other Tranche 1 schemes is ongoing and we want to hear your comments.
