THERE is one week left for residents to have their say on Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service’s proposals for the year ahead.

The service launched its biggest consultation about its future in October, and more than 1,000 people from Cheshire, Halton and Warrington have given their feedback on the Making Cheshire Safer plan.

Sian Corrigan, the service’s communication and consultation manager, said: “We have had an excellent response to the consultation, and I would like to thank everyone who has taken the time to share their views.

“There is still time for others to add their voices. I would urge people to tell us what they think about our plans by visiting our website or sending back one of the paper surveys given out at locations across Cheshire.”

The plans include the building of new fire stations and changes to the way the service staffs some of its current stations – including Knutsford.

The consultation deadline tion is December 17.

Residents who have not yet responded can take part in the consultation by visiting where the draft plan is available to read in full or in summary, and where there is an online survey to complete, or by calling 01606 868408 and requesting a paper copy of survey, which can be returned by freepost.
