Have your say about governance for Macclesfield

Macclesfield is the only area in Cheshire East which is now “unparished”.  This means that whereas even the smaller villages around the area have a body to represent them, Macclesfield does not.  This means that not only are decisions affecting us  made by councillors who do not represent us and do not know the town, but also there is no Macclesfield body for those outside councillors to consult.

The good news is that  Cheshire East Council is embarking on a Community Governance Review for the town. This will consider options for improved community engagement and local democracy.

They have planned a series of public meetings over the next few weeks to explain more about the current situation, what the options are, what could happen next and how to have your say. Go along and get involved:
