Your Views are Important

As part of the Local Transport Plan Cheshire East Council is taking a range of actions across the borough. To complement these actions, the Council is developing Town Delivery Plans that set out a range of scheme options that could be delivered to improve the transport network and support towns and surrounding areas.

The Local Transport Delivery Plans will identify where the Council should prioritise investment and seek funding for transport initiatives, with the overall aim of improving:

  • accessibility for all – considering all travel needs;
  • sustainability – improving walking, cycling and public transport;
  • quality of the public realm – managing traffic to support town centres and the visitor economy;
  • better neighbourhoods – improving amenity where people live; and
  • connectivity – the strategic links needs to access work, education and essential services, such as hospitals.

These plans focus on how the issues and opportunities identified in the Boroughwide Local Transport Plan Strategy relate to specific areas, setting out a range of options that could be delivered to improve the transport network and support the recovery of individual town centres in Cheshire East.

The Council is asking for  your views to ensure the right objectives and options are identified for each town and the wider area.

You can view and give your feedback on Local Transport Town Delivery Plans for each area in Cheshire East

This engagement closes on 31 March 2021. Following this period of engagement, feedback will be reviewed and schemes will be prioritised to shape the final Town Delivery Plans for each area of the borough.
