Current Cheshire East Council Consultations
Parking Review Statutory Consultation 2023
Congleton residents have until Wednesday 1 November to have their say on the Cheshire East Consultation into Parking Charges. View the consultation here: Parking Review Statutory Consultation (cheshireeast.gov.uk)
Make your thoughts known by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org or writing to: Parking Services Manager, Parking Services Department, c/o Delamere House, Delamere Street, Crewe, CW1 2LL.
Cheshire East Council is proposing to make the following changes:
- Overall price increases to hourly tariffs, daily rates & other permits
- Increase the chargeable times from 9am-5pm to 8am-6pm
- Parking will still be free on a Sunday
- Blue Badge Holders will still be able to park for free on all council-managed car parks for an unlimited time period
You can make an appointment to view the proposals at Congleton Library.
Pre-consultation Congleton Town Council informed Cheshire East it thought Congleton town centre was not in a position to accept higher charges. There are no demand and supply issues, and rather than saving carbon the increase could mean that people drive to other shopping areas with free parking, to the detriment of the town centre. There are currently no adequate easy alternatives to the car for many people.
FlexiLink: Service Proposals
Cheshire East Council are currently reviewing the FlexiLink service to understand how the service has been performing, with an assessment of efficiency, affordability and value for money. The review so far has identified a number of significant challenges, including low levels of demand, under-utilised vehicles and often inefficient vehicle use due to a lack of automated routing and scheduling software. They have therefore identified a set of potential proposals to expand & improve the service, ensuring it is more efficient, cost effective and sustainable.

Allocations Policy Consultation 2023
It is a statutory requirement under the Housing Act 1996 for local authorities to have an Allocations Policy in place which outlines how social housing located within their authority will be allocated. The current Cheshire East Council (CEC) Allocations Policy was approved in 2018. Minor amendments have been made since then to bring the Policy into line with new legislation. Housing staff have been considering the existing policy and areas in need of improvement incorporating comments, compliments, and complaints about it. It is therefore proposed that some sections of the Policy need to be amended.
Closes Thursday, 30 November 2023
