It's not too late to take part in Cheshire West and Chester Council's consultation on how it manages wildflower planting, parks and open spaces, and outdoor play and youth areas in the borough.

The Council plans to produce an overarching Environmental Management Strategy, for Council-owned land and facilities, which will include a review of its current Play Strategy, a Wildflower and Grassland Strategy, and a Parks and Greenspaces Strategy.

We've had a great response to our consultation so far with lots of people giving their views, it's not too late to have your say. Please let us know what you think of our proposals regarding wildflower planting, grass cutting, and play and youth areas."
