Cheshire West and Chester Council has developed and launched a new plan for 2016-2020 - called Helping the Borough Thrive.
The Council Plan sets out the Council's vision, what it wants to achieve, and the way its staff will work.
To shape this plan we listened to your views in 'Let's Talk' - a 12-week consultation. We engaged with more than 1,800 people and developed the plan by considering the views of residents, councillors, staff and partners, while ensuring that any planned outcomes worked within the Council's four-year budget.
The Council's new, long term vision is of a thriving borough. By 2020, Cheshire West will have a thriving economy, residents and communities.
We will deliver 4,400 new houses, £277 million pounds of investment into regeneration and key infrastructure, 1,730 complex families turned around, 1,780 new businesses in the borough, and much more.
This plan demonstrates the Council's ambitions, details what will change and, vitally, how it will change. The plan is structured through ten outcomes, all of which have key focus areas and a vision of what success will look like by 2020.
