Cheshire East Council have now confirmed that the 12 week public consultation on proposals for the governance arrangements for town and parish councils in the borough will begin on 6th September.
A community governance review is a complex task and Cheshire East Council have confirmed that no decisions have yet been made and any changes would follow reflection on the responses to this latest public consultation – including with town and parish councils.
The public are urged to share their views with Cheshire East via the online consultation on the website from 6th September. Residents of Hulme Walfield and Somerford Booths will have received information through their doors from the parish council on this consultation, and will know that they can also comment on the proposed changes by returning the response form or emailing them to the Clerk by 10th September. The proposals and the community responses will be discussed at the next council meeting which will be held at 7.30pm on 23rd September at Westlow Mere Fisheries meeting room. The council will use the views expressed to make its official response, however, residents are also encouraged to submit individual responses via the online consultation if they are able to do so.
The consultation ends at midnight on 28th November.
