 Current Consultations

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

Pre-Budget Consultation

Cheshire East Council has been working throughout the summer to produce a set of proposals that can achieve the council's outcomes and balance our finances in for the period 1st April 2019 through to 31st March 2020.  By 2020 the council is expected to have no reliance at all on general funding from central government, meaning that council tax, business rates and direct charges will have to provide enough income to fund vital services especially in children's and families services, adult social care and for our most vulnerable residents.

Your feedback is really important and we want to hear your opinions and views.

This consultation will close on 14 December 2018.

Proposed Resource Provision at Monks Coppenhall Academy

The council have completed a sufficiency review of its special educational needs provision across the local authority. It has identified that there is a need within the Crewe, Nantwich and Shavington area to provide at least 21 places in specialist resource provision for children with a primary need of ASC.
As a need for at least 7 places for resource provision has been identified in the Crewe area and Monks Coppenhall Academy were the only school to express an interest we are proposing that the provision is created at this school.

This consultation will close on 17 December 2018.

Adults Advocacy Engagement Survey

Cheshire East Council is looking to review how advocacy services are provided. Advocacy is taking action to help people say what they want, secure their rights, represent their interests and obtain services they need. Advocates and advocacy providers work in partnership with the people they support and take their side. Advocacy promotes social inclusion, equality and social justice.

Currently these services are provided through a single point of contact which is Cheshire based. Individuals receive one to one support from an advocate. In addition to this survey, we are also working with providers and professionals to obtain their views and feedback too, to help inform how the service is provided in the future.

This consultation will close on 2 January 2019.

Waste Collection Reorganisation

Cheshire East Council is proposing to extend the hours and days of collection, to facilitate new routes and rotas for recycling and waste kerbside collection services, from Autumn 2019.

This consultation will close on 7 January 2019.
