We believe that involving citizens in decisions which affect their lives is a means to develop and empowered and strong community and whilst we can’t force people to engage, but will do our best to make it easy and attractive for people to do so. When we want people’s views on a project, we will consult the community. Our ‘open’ (whole community) consultations will always run for at least six weeks and we will avoid running them over school summer holidays, Easter and Christmas.

Any consultations we run will be hosted here and we will always post a consultation report after each consultation.



We are consulting on the Knutsford Planting Plan. This is a key part of our Nature Action Plan and sets out the public spaces that we would like to plant trees, hedges, shrubs and flowers on over the next four years. This includes highway verges and open spaces.

We would like the views of the community on the areas we proposed to plant and will review feedback to agree a final planting plan. We will then undertake the first planting round in early 2021.

You can email your feedback to or write to us at Council Offices, Toft Road, Knutsford, WA16 6TA.

The tree planting plan document is not an accessible document and contains a number of pictures to illustrate areas which are proposed for planting. We will happily provide the plans in a more accessible format on request, please contact
