RESIDENTS have until Friday, September 10 to have their first say on how Cheshire West and Chester Council spends millions of pounds on their behalf over the next decade.
The council launched a three-phase consultation earlier in the summer aimed at giving occupiers a chance to give their views on shaping an authority which it says has pledged to provide the best in high quality, innovative services.
Every home in the borough was sent a copy of the consultation document Have Your Say with the authority's newspaper, Talking Together.
People have been asked to list their personal priorities in order for a modern and efficient council, first class facilities and services and area-based regeneration programmes.
Feedback forms can be completed online or cut out and posted to the council.
Stage two of the consultation, taking place this month (September) and last, involves discussions with public and private sector partners and stakeholders.
Phase three will involve meetings with Cheshire West and Chester citizens' panels in the Chester, Ellesmere Port and former Vale Royal areas.
Council leader Cllr Mike Jones (Con, Broxton) said: "We welcome everyone's input into this extremely vital process designed to give the people of West Cheshire the chance to make their contribution to our plans to both improve their quality of life and provide excellent value for money.”
He added:“In these difficult times it is vitally important that the council spends its money efficiently and with the support of local residents."
