Current consultations

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.

Cheshire East Sensory Impairment Strategy - Consultation

Cheshire East Council and Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCCG) have drafted a Sensory Impairment Strategy 2021-24. This strategy sets out how we will work in partnership to provide the right services at the right time for children, young people and adults living with sensory impairments.

Cheshire East Council is now consulting on this strategy to see what you think of it, and to see how you think it might be improved.

Watch our video introducing this consultation below or watch the introductory video on youtube (external link). You can also read a transcript of this introductory video (PDF, 79KB).

Please submit your consultation response by Friday 20 August 2021.

Market Position Statement - Your feedback

A market position statement (MPS) is a document published by commissioning authorities which summarises the supply and demand in a local authority area. The MPS brings together local information and analysis relating to commercial opportunities within the public health, health, and social care market in that area.

Cheshire East Council and Cheshire NHS Clinical Commissioning Group have drafted a joint MPS across health and social care, to ensure that we provide consistent and joint messages for the market.

We would now like your feedback on this MPS.

Please submit your response by 15 September 2021.

Council Tax Support Consultation for 2022/23

In agreeing the Council’s budget, a commitment was made to enhance the Council Tax Support Scheme which provides a reduction in Council Tax for those on a low income.  We have received a grant from Central Government to help with the financial pressures households are facing as a result of the pandemic and we intend to use this to increase overall spending on Council Tax Support.

The proposals affect the Cheshire East Council Tax Support scheme for those of working age.  The scheme for those of pension age is maintained by Central Government and we cannot change this.

 We are seeking your feedback on a range of proposals which will mean most working-age people receiving Council Tax Support will get more.

 Paper copies of this consultation material are available on request by e-mailing or ringing 0300 123 5013 and choose option 2 for Benefits.

Please give your feedback by midnight on Sunday 19 September 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.
