Current consultations

Short Breaks for Disabled Children - Parent Carer Consultation

Cheshire East Council currently commissions providers to deliver short breaks services for children with disabilities. Contracts with these providers are due to expire in August 2020, and we want to gather views to make sure these services commissioned by the council reflect what is important to the people who use them.

Feedback from the consultation will be used to shape and influence the way these services are delivered in future.

Please submit your consultation response by 30 November 2019.

Environmental Strategy 2019 - 2024 Consultation

Cheshire East Council has developed its first draft Environmental Strategy 2019 - 2024.

This strategy sets out the strategic goals and priority actions the Council will take to respond to the global challenge of climate change, and to protect and enhance our local environment.

The council is now consulting on this strategy to see what you think of it, to see how you think it might be improved, and to see how you think the council could support the wider community to reduce its carbon footprint.

Please submit your consultation response by 11:59pm on Sunday 1 December 2019.

Cheshire East Pre-Budget Consultation 2020 - 2024

Cheshire East Council has issued its Pre-Budget Consultation setting out proposals for change for the period 2020/21 to 2023/24.This is an opportunity for interested parties to review and comment on the Council’s Budget proposals. 

The budget proposals described in this consultation document are Council wide proposals and our intention at this stage is to invite consultation on the broad budget proposals.

Please submit your consultation response by 6 January 2020.

Cheshire East Community Governance Review - Part One

We are conducting a review of town and parish council governance arrangements across the Cheshire East Borough to ensure that such arrangements continue to reflect local identities and facilitate effective and convenient local government.  

At this stage the Council has undertaken some preliminary analysis of each of the town/ parish council wards within the borough. A small number of requests from parish councils to review their specific governance arrangements have also been received.

We would now like your views on how effective you feel the current governance arrangements are and if you feel changes, if any, are required and why. Once this stage of the review has been complete we will develop some draft proposals which will be the subject of a formal consultation at a later date.

Please submit your consultation response by 5pm on the 31 January 2020.
