Not too late to have your say on framework for reviewing community assets

31 January 2018

It’s not too late to share your views and help the Council create a framework which will ensure community assets meet the needs of the people they serve.

A consultation was launched last month on the Council’s draft community assets framework document – which will ultimately look at libraries, community centres, public conveniences, parks and play areas.

The Council is dedicated to ensuring that its community assets are well managed, offer better and cost effective services for communities and support work with partners like health services.

Based around six key principles, the framework will ensure that the right services are available in the right locations, based on local need, and will also help to identify facilities that are no longer offering the best service for residents, and where residents feel a facility may be better managed by them.

Councillor Louise Gittins, Cabinet Member for Communities and Wellbeing said: “We want to ensure that community assets are of the highest standard they can be and serving the needs of the local community because they are of huge value to our residents.

“Please take a moment to let us know what you think about our framework – which will be used to review our community assets and make sure they continue to be fit for purpose. We would love to hear from as many people as possible.” The consultation is taking place over a 12-week period and closes on Sunday, 25 February 2018.

The remaining drop-in sessions for the consultation will take place as follows:
  • Monday 5 February, 10am - 1pm at Great Boughton Library, Green Lane, Chester, CH3 5LB
  • Tuesday 6 February, 3.30pm - 6.30pm at Wharton Library, Willow Square, Winsford, CW7 3HP
  • Saturday 10 February, 10am - 1pm at Northwich Library, Witton Street, Northwich, CW9 5DR
