Cheshire East Community Governance Review - Part One
- town and parish boundaries
- numbers of town and parish councillors
- arrangements for wards and the meetings of groups of parish councils
It is good practice to review community governance every 10-15 years. Cheshire East Council was created in 2009 and has yet to hold a full review of town and parish council governance.
At this stage the Council has undertaken some preliminary analysis of each of the town/ parish council wards within the borough including details of current electorate and councillor representation, together with electorate growth forecasts that take account of expected future house-building. The council has also received a small number of requests from parish councils to review their specific governance arrangements.
As part of the process, we would now like your views on how effective you feel the current governance arrangements are and if you feel changes, if any, are required and why.
Please note that the inclusion of any particular town/ parish council ward at this stage does not necessarily mean that its boundaries will change. The list is simply a starting point for deliberation.
Once this stage of the review has been complete we will develop some draft proposals which will be the subject of a formal consultation at a later date.
