HAVE YOUR SAY ON YOUR COMMUNITY GOVERNANCE
Cheshire East is holding a 12-week consultation on proposals for the governance arrangements for town and parish councils in the borough.
This is part of a borough-wide review, as Cheshire East is responsible for the governance and electoral arrangements for the borough’s 186 town and parish council wards in 135 town and parish councils.
The review looks at a range of issues, including town and parish boundaries, numbers of town and parish councillors, grouping of parishes and warding. The consultation provides people with an opportunity to comment and make the case for alternative proposals to those recommended.
The public consultation runs from 6 September to 28 November. To take part, go online at: https://surveys.cheshireeast.gov.uk/s/CGReview2/
● Paper copies of the consultation can also be obtained from local libraries.
Swettenham Village and St Peter's Church Swettenham Village both have Facebook pages. Their posts are a good source of information about local events so why not add them to organisations you follow on Facebook
Swettenham is a civil parish and village in the unitary authority of Cheshire East and the ceremonial county of Cheshire. The parish comprises the villages of Swettenham and Kermincham and is situated some five miles north-west of Congleton on the banks of the River Dane, which flows though the Parish in a delightful and unspoilt valley, breaking up the flat but well-wooded country lying to the north and south. To the east the plain rises gently to a background formed by the East Cheshire Hills. The parish comprises the ancient church of St Peter’s, one pub - The Swettenham Arms and numerous farms and various other small businesses mostly run from home.
