KNUTSFORD residents are being urged to have their say on what they would like the town council to achieve in the 10 years.

The town council is looking to devise a new strategic plan and set out what it aims to deliver for the community between 2022 and 2032.

Now a consultation has been launched to help the council understand residents' priorities before setting its objectives.

And to do this, residents are being invited to a series of workshops where they can air their views.

Five workshops are being held in the town at different times to maximise the ability for people to be able to attend. They will take place at:

  • 11am on Tuesday, June 28, at Egerton Place, Church Hill
  • 7pm on Wednesday, June 29, at The Welcome, Longridge
  • 7pm on Thursday, June 30, 7pm at Egerton Place
  • 2pm on Saturday, July 2, at Egerton Place
  • 7pm on Thursday, July 14, online using Zoom

Those who cannot attend the workshops can also feed their priorities in via a survey on the council’s website which goes live on Monday 27th June.

All 15 town councillors have starred in a promotional video aiming to get the word out about the consultation and encouraging residents to participate.

The video highlights some of the achievements of the council over the last 10 years which have included making improvements at Knutsford Cemetery, delivering award winning public toilets and running community events.

Speaking in the video, town mayor Cllr Mike Houghton said: “This is your opportunity to have a say on how the council can work to improve Knutsford for us all.

"Please take the time to engage as we really do want to hear what you think.”

The council’s strategic plan is not to be confused with the Cheshire East Local Plan or the Knutsford Neighbourhood Plan, both of which are planning documents.

Instead, the council’s strategic (or corporate) plan will set out what the council itself aspires to achieve for the local community, whether that is through lobbying, delivering new services or improving town assets.
