Cheshire East Council has a number of consultations which may be of interest

Well Managed Highway Infrastructure (WMHI)

In order to comply with new national guidance and its recommendations, the council needs to revise its codes of practice for highway safety inspections and winter and adverse weather service. The proposed new approach – now subject to public consultation – is to consider additional local risk factors such as use, the proximity of schools, shops, transport hubs, health services and other factors which could be considered to help determine the priority of highways work in Cheshire East.

Closes Monday 27th August


Cemeteries Strategy Consultation

Cheshire East Council has produced a new Cemeteries Strategy for the borough. The strategy ensures that the provision of cemeteries meets local needs for existing and future residents within Cheshire East. Specialist consultants Harrison Design Development have been appointed to carry out this work on our behalf, who will be gathering information and evidence from many sources. 

Closes Friday 14th September
