Hartford Neighbourhood Plan is 'made'

At the Cabinet Meeting held by Cheshire West and Chester Council on June 8th 2016 it was unanimously resolved to 'make' the neighbourhood plan.

Cheshire West and Chester Council will issue a formal 'decision statement' confirming the Council's decision to 'make' the plan, once the 5 day call in period has passed and the minutes of the meeting have been published.

The neighbourhood plan will then form part of the statutory development plan for the neighbourhood area and will be used in making decisions on planning applications.

Invitation to join a sub-regional MOVEment 9.30am-3.30pm Friday 7th October 2016 Jodrell Bank

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 12:33 by Jo O'Donoghue

Opening address: Lord-Lieutenant David Briggs, M.B.E., K.St.J

Guest speaker: Professor Greg Whyte OBE Olympian, 'physical activity guru' and world-renowned sports scientist

With over 200,000 local adults failing to achieve just 30 mins of physical activity per week, it's clearly time to step up our efforts to tackle physical inactivity. We can't do this alone - and we haven't been.

Each year in Cheshire & Warrington some 1500 businesses, 396 schools, 121 GP surgeries, 27 commissioners, 992 clubs, 3 Local Authorities, 400 health and social care professionals, the sub-regional transport body and over 80,000 parents have been encouraging others to MOVE more. We know that physical activity is a cost-effective solution to managing demand, improving health, enabling independence and building resilience within our communities. And yet the problem continues to grow and we continue to patch together solutions in the hope of success. More »

We'd like to team up to confront this issue, to maximise local resources and find new, smarter ways of encouraging our residents to adopt active lifestyles.

On 7th October, Lord-Lieutenant and Patron of Active Cheshire David Briggs, will call upon local stakeholders to join forces to tackle physical inactivity in a more collaborative manner, for the health and prosperity of local people.

The event will provide an opportunity to:

  • Learn more about how physical activity is contributing to wider social, economic and environmental outcomes and tackling health inequalities in a cost-effective way
  • Find out more about how we might together attract a slice of the £250m available from Sport England to embed active lifestyles in Cheshire & Warrington
  • Meet with inactive people to challenge thinking around existing provision
  • Show your commitment to working collaboratively by joining the MOVEment
  • Help to shape future strategy and resources relating to sport and physical activity locally

We are thrilled to be joined by Professor Greg Whyte OBE, globally recognised expert in physical activity and Comic Relief coach to David Walliams, Eddie Izzard, Gary Barlow, John Bishop and more! Greg will share insight into the challenges we will all face in inspiring behaviour change locally and the importance of combining our efforts and resources. – as well as his humorous experiences of taking real people and our comedy heroes out of their comfort zones!

We would love to have you join us. To confirm your attendance please email charles.maines@activecheshire.org, highlighting any special requirements you may have. Please dress comfortably as you will be encouraged to stand and move during the day.

Thank you for your continued support. I look forward to welcoming you at the event.
