In 2014 we adopted our first corporate/strategic plan – the ‘2020 Vision’ – which ran until 2020. Under this plan we delivered a Neighbourhood Plan, worked to improve green spaces and sought the protection of historic buildings.  After a delay due to the pandemic, we are now working on a new plan which will guide our work from 2022 to 2032 and we want to hear from YOU what our priorities should be.

A strategic plan is a key document for any organisation, setting out what is priorities are and how it will work to meet them. The council’s strategic plan will guide our work over a decade, keeping us on a track to ensure we are consistently delivering for Knutsford. It will be a key document in assessing how successful we are as an organisation and ensure that councillors, officers and the wider public have a clear vision of what the council should be achieving and when.

We are at the first stage of our plan making process – hearing from the community what you think our priorities should be.


The first stage of our plan making process is to hear from the community what our priorities should be. We’re running an open consultation from Monday 27th June to Friday 5th August 2022.

We would love as many people as possible to have their say and are hosting a programme of workshops (see details below). We’ll also be running an engagement session in the Knutsford Academy to hear from school aged students.

If you cannot attend one of our workshops you will be able to share your views here: Strategic Plan Consultation Survey.

Check out our promo video featuring all 15 of your councillors.


We’re hosting five community workshops this summer to hear from you what you want us to focus on over the next decade. For our face to face workshops there is no need to register, but we are asking those joining our virtual session to register in advance. All workshops will be identical, so you only need to attend one to have your voice heard.
