Cheshire East Council Economic Strategy Consultation

Cheshire East Council has developed a new strategy for the Borough which sets out a plan of how growth in the local economy can be delivered sustainably and the key priorities for the next five year period 2019 to 2024.

There are some great economic benefits for Cheshire East; our location connecting the North to the Midlands; our economy as one of the most successful in the country; and our rich natural environment and strong sense of community. However, we cannot be complacent and as a borough we need to be proactive and invest and intervene where it makes sense.

The Economic Strategy for Cheshire East outlines where we think the priority areas are and includes a set of proposed actions to support the delivery of these actions. he strategy uses a strong evidence base and has been developed in partnership with representatives from the private sector.

It is still in draft form and we are now testing the strategic thinking through a public consultation so that our local businesses and residents can tell us what they think.

We want as many people as possible to be engaged in the consultation and would vey much appreciate your views and your advice and support in sharing the opportunity to comment with any groups or forums that you are involved with.

The document and consultation can be found on the Cheshire East Council website at:

The closing date for comments has been extended to 5pm on Sunday 13th October 2019.

Once the consultation closes we will analyse all responses, produce a summary report of them, and publish this online on our consultation webpages.
