Cheshire East Council invite you to contribute to their consultation on waste collection service reorganisation, which will run to 7 January 2019.

This proposal is to enable flexibility in the operational management of waste collection which will allow the service to align the changes that will be required with the introduction of the authority’s new food waste recycling service in 2019.

By doing this we would also see the end of the garden waste collection winter shut down period, as food and garden waste would be collected for recycling all year round in the garden waste bin. The proposals relate to significant savings identified in the pre-budget report for 2019-20.

The proposal for future collection of household waste is to extend the hours and days of collection which will facilitate new routes and rotas for recycling and waste kerbside collection services from Autumn 2019.

You are invited to respond to the consultation at  https://surveys.cheshireeast.gov.uk/s/WasteCollectionConsultation/

Cheshire East Council has published its Pre-Budget Consultation Report for 2019 to 2022.

Set against a backdrop of increasing demand and rising costs, the report sets out proposals on the council’s financial plans as to how services will be delivered for the period from April 1 2019 through to March 31 2020.

Along with almost every other local authority, Cheshire East is facing a particularly challenging financial position with the reduction of central government funding to balance the position for the next three years.

The council is inviting the opinions and views from residents, businesses, councillors, staff, town and parish councils, local community groups and other stakeholders. The feedback received will be used to inform the budget setting process.

To have your say, please go to: cheshireeast.gov.uk/budget

The consultation runs until 14 December and findings will be considered before the final budget is agreed by full council on 21 February 2019.

High Speed Two (HS2) Limited are holding two consultations between 11 October and 21 December 2018, on the working drafts of the Environmental Statement and the Equality Impact Assessment Report.

To back these up, they are holding a series of information events around the county ans setting up a number of information points.
