Current consultations

Draft Minerals and Waste Plan

The Minerals and Waste Plan will allocate sites and areas to sustainably meet the identified requirements for the provision of minerals and the management of waste. It will also set out strategic and detailed policies to guide decisions on minerals and waste planning applications.

Cheshire East Council is consulting on the Draft Minerals and Waste Plan and supporting documents (Sustainability Appraisal and Habitats Regulations Assessment) between 9 November and 5:00pm on 21 December 2022. They are also carrying out a ‘call for sites’ to invite submissions of sites or areas that may be suitable for potential allocation for minerals or waste uses. We are asking for information on all potential sites and areas, even if they have been submitted in the past.

Further information can be found on our Minerals and Waste Plan webpage. Please respond by 5:00pm on 21 December 2022.

Draft Electric Vehicle (EV) Infrastructure Strategy

Cheshire East Council has committed to becoming carbon neutral by 2025 and improving local air quality. The CEC Local Transport Plan sets out a range of actions to decarbonise our transport network with a key element of this supporting the transition to electric vehicles (EVs). 

Cheshire East Council has already invested in providing a number of electric vehicle charge points and we are currently working towards delivering a further 15 EV charging sites in 2023. However, there are still key gaps in the network within Cheshire East and we have developed a strategy to guide and support further roll out of EV charge points in the future by working alongside key partners.

We would like your opinions on whether this strategy and the actions we are proposing will help to achieve our aims.

Please respond by 22 December 2022.

Paper versions of the survey and the Draft Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Strategy are also available at your local library.

Cemeteries Strategy and Regulations 2022 Consultation

Cheshire East Council has a Cemeteries Strategy and a set of Cemetery Regulations.

The council wishes to update both these documents and so is engaging with stakeholders to ensure that all opinions and views are sought and understood, before both documents are updated and presented to the Environment and Communities Committee for debate and adoption.

Please respond by 23 December 2022.

Cheshire East Website Survey

Last year we asked what you thought of our website and we made some changes based on your feedback.  We want to know what you think of the website now.

Please respond by 1 January 2023.

Draft Digital Inclusion Partnership Strategy 2023-2026

‘Digital Inclusion’ is about making sure that people have the ability, access and confidence to use the internet to do things that benefit them day to day.

Together, with partners we have wanted to understand what the key issues are for residents in relation to digital inclusion and what we can do to increase the number of residents who are digitally included.

Please respond by 2 January 2023. 

 If you have difficulties in accessing or completing this survey for any reason, staff are available at your local library that will be able to assist. Paper versions of the survey and the draft digital strategy are also available there. If you cannot access a library, cannot complete the form online or if you require large print documents, please contact our Customer Service team on 0300 123 5032.
