CWaC launch Climate Emergency hub ‘Inspire’

Tackling the Climate Emergency remains a key priority for Cheshire West and Chester Council.  We know there are many local groups and individuals playing their part to make their communities greener and better places to live. That’s why we have launched an exciting online engagement hub named ‘Inspire’.

The Council’s Climate Emergency Response Plan strives to help the borough become carbon neutral by 2045 and Inspire is a place for people to share the actions they are taking against climate change.

Cheshire West Crowd

Cheshire West and Chester Council is set to launch the Cheshire West Crowd, an exciting new crowdfunding programme.

Working in partnership with Spacehive, the UK’s leading civic crowdfunding platform, the Cheshire West Crowd will empower people to create projects that will make a positive difference in their community.

Cheshire West and Chester Council will be allocating funding to the Cheshire West Crowd and supporting projects focusing on its priorities, with up to 75 per cent of the overall crowdfunding target for projects available from the Council to boost them.

Local organisations offering support to projects, whether it be funding or in kind, will also be invited to join the Cheshire West Crowd and help turbocharge the success of locally-led campaigns.

The Cheshire West Crowd will be formally launched at an online event from 6pm to 7pm on Monday 7 June.  Everyone is encouraged to attend to learn more about how to take part in the programme, whether that’s creating your own local project or supporting community-led ideas with as little as £2.

Dog Control – Public Spaces Protection Order consultation 13 May – 4 July

In October 2018 Cheshire West and Chester Council introduced a wide range of measures covering the control of dogs and encouraging responsible dog ownership, which are now due for review.

The measures currently in force are:

  • Dogs are excluded from fully-enclosed children’s play areas that contain play equipment.
  • Dogs are excluded from Fully or Partially enclosed Multi Use Games Areas (MUGAs) and Tennis courts
  • Dogs must be placed on a lead at the request of an authorised officer
  • Dogs must be on a lead in Council owned cemeteries and crematoria.
  • Where a lead is required it must be a maximum of 2m in length (fixed or locked)
  • A maximum of 6 dogs per person can be walked together.
  • Dog walkers must carry sufficient means to pick up their dog foul.

It is already an offence if dog walkers fail to pick up dog foul.  It is proposed that this standalone offence be included in the wider Public Spaces Protection Order on dog control.

Cheshire West and Chester Council recognises that the vast majority of dog owners are responsible and keep their dogs under control while they are out.  For animal welfare reasons it is also beneficial for dog owners to be able to exercise their dogs off lead in open spaces.

The consultation asks for views on the current measures in place as well as seeking views on adding additional control areas.  There are a variety of ways for people to give their views:
