Our Priorities – A Community Debate
An interactive, online debate is being held with CWaC Executive Members on Wednesday 1st October (6pm – 9pm). The event will be chaired by Jim Hancock and questions will be sent in live via social media.

Background
Last year, Cheshire West & Chester Council consulted on a three-year budget. We are progressing our financial plan and are on track to deliver what was agreed by council in March. Moving forward, we want to look to 2017/18 and beyond. We are holding an interactive debate with the public to share progress so far and ask for views on what matters most to people in the years ahead.

Our Priorities – A Community Debate
The community debate will take place online from 6pm to 9pm on 1st October with the CWaC Executive. We are asking the public to send questions to us in advance, which we will use to help shape the broad themes of the event. People can also submit questions ‘live’ – which will be included ‘impromptu’ as related topics are discussed. The debate will be chaired by Jim Hancock who has a wealth of experience and has supported the council on a number of other similar activities. You can watch and contribute to the debate via the link to ‘Our
Priorities’ on the council homepage: www.cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk

A booklet has also been prepared to provide supporting information for this event and beyond. The document sets out our progress and seeks views on future priorities (2017/18 onwards). The booklet is available online via the council homepage and in hardcopy on request.

Building on engagement
This event will build on existing consultation with the public, including previous years’ budget consultations, Make or Buy consultations and service specific engagement.

As always we continue to welcome views at any time. We will be collating feedback arising from the booklet and event over the next 12 months and intend to use it to shape the council’s future plans for 2017 and beyond.
