Knutsford Town Council hosted five workshops last week as part of creating its new 10 year strategy.
Three sessions were held at Egerton Place in the town centre and one at the Welcome Café on Longridge. The Town Council also ensured it heard from the younger members of the community by delivering a session to a class of year 9 students at the Knutsford Academy and they were joined by a few year 12s too.
The Town Council is developing a new 10-year strategy to guide its work and until 5th August is running an open consultation to hear from the community what it wants to see the council do to better serve Knutsford.
“We’re keen to understand what the community wants to see change over next ten years so we can work to help deliver that change for the town” said Town Clerk, Adam Keppel-Green.
The council’s next workshop is being held online via Zoom next Thursday (14th July). Residents can register to join it via the council website at www.knutsfordtowncouncil.gov.uk/strategicplan.
The website also hosts a short survey which replicates the format of the workshops – including a short introductory video. The survey is open until 5th August.
“Our aim is to hear from as many residents as possible over the next few weeks” Adam added.
All feedback from residents is encouraged and the council also invites residents to send their views in via letter or email to the Council Offices, Toft Road, Knutsford, WA16 6TA or email@example.com
“The more people that come forward to tell us what is important to them, what they want to see more of or less of in the town – no matter how small or grand – will help us shape our pan in the knowledge we’re meeting our resident’s needs” Adam said.
