Cheshire West and Chester Council has launched an eight-week public consultation to help shape the future priorities of its highways service.
It wants to discover what residents think is most important to them as it tries to balance response times, service standards, its current corporate priorities and the budgetary pressures facing its highways delivery.
Cheshire West and Chester’s Cabinet Member for Environment, Highways and Strategic Transport, Councillor Karen Shore, said: “The council is seeking views to help us decide what the priorities of the services provided by our highways team should be in the future. With a budget of around £20 million our highways service is one of the largest in the council. Financial pressures are increasing due to reduced Government funding, combined with competing demands for general road maintenance and new capital projects.
“This means we will need to be both prudent and innovative in our future approach. We are seeking our residents feedback on their experience of the current service, what you think should be prioritised in the future, the scope of services and key criteria for the new service.”
