New Community Assets Framework

Resident's views and ideas are invited on a new community assets framework

Residents are being urged to share their views and help the Council create a framework which will ensure community buildings and provision meet the needs of the people they serve.

A consultation was launched on Monday, 4 December 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.

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.

Community assets are of huge value to residents and it is important to ensure that they are of the highest standard they can be and serving the needs of the local community.

This consultation is an opportunity for everyone to let us know what they think about our framework — which will be used to review the community assets and make sure they continue to be fit for purpose.

The consultation will take place over a 12 week period starting from today, 4 December 2017 and closing on Sunday, 25 February 2018.
Residents are encouraged to get involved in the following ways:

  • Email:
  • Write to: Cheshire West and Chester Council, Research, Intelligence and Consultation Team, Nicholas Street, Cheshire. CH1 2NP
