It’s two years since Cheshire East Council voted to move from a Cabinet to a Committee System of Governance. Now just five weeks away from the switch-over date at the Annual Council Meeting on 12th May, Conservative Group Leader, Janet Clowes, considers progress to date:
Cllr Janet Clowes (Conservative Group Leader) has raised the issue of Planning Enforcement both at Cabinet in January and at Full Council last week seeking answers to residents’ concerns that Cheshire East has failed to address for years.
At December’s full Council Meeting, there was a full and thorough cross-party debate where the simplistic Notice of Motion as proposed by Independent Cllr Akers-Smith was challenged from the outset by her member peers from all Parties (including her own).
As 2020 draws to a close, Cllr Janet Clowes (Conservative Group Leader), reflects both on an extraordinarily difficult year, where Covid-19 pandemic has impacted on us all and the lessons learned as we move towards 2021:
The Cheshire East Conservative Group carefully designed a proposal for some free car parking over December and early January to help boost our local retail economy which has been ravaged by Covid restrictions and encouraging residents to ‘Shop Local’ without compromising on safety.”.
