The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
CWAC: October 2019
Cheshire West and Chester Council is urging residents to get involved as it sets out an ambitious vision for the future of the borough despite financial uncertainty.
The council has launched Play Your Part to give residents, businesses, young people and community groups a chance to have their say on its next four-year plan and how they can help make the plan a reality.
Play Your Part focuses on five challenges the borough faces between 2020 and 2024 — all in the light of a budget gap of between £11 million and £27 million over this time, depending on future government funding.
These challenges include tackling the climate emergency, supporting the economy to grow and provide good jobs with fair wages for residents, supporting children and young people to get the best start in life and achieve their full potential, helping more of us to live longer, happier, healthier lives and making all neighbourhoods even better places to call home.
Play Your Part also sets out its ambition for a new partnership between the council and community in which everyone has a part to play in tackling the challenges ahead.
Cllr Louise Gittins, council leader and cabinet member for wellbeing, said: "My overarching priority as council leader is to help everyone thrive by building stronger communities.
A live online question time event will also take place on November 11 where members of the public can put their questions to cabinet, the council's ruling group. To submit a question in advance visit: www.cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk/playyourpart2019,
or tweet @Go_CheshireWest using #playyourpartcw You can also submit live questions during the event.
