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.

Police warn young people to be vigilant when using social media

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 14:37 by Jo O'Donoghue

Police are reminding young people to be absolutely sure that they know who they are making friends with on social media.

Cheshire Police has received a number of reports of Facebook profiles, being created by individuals pretending to be a young person and befriending children online.

PC Helen Harrison, of Sandbach Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: "What they are doing is firstly establishing a "friendship" or connection with a young person through Facebook and then sending them sexually explicit images through the messenger services. More »

"It is children who are seeing images and we are urging parents and carers to pay close attention to their child's use of social media and provide them with advice and guidance to ensure they remain safe online.

"Sharing our personal lives with friends and loved ones on social media can be fun and rewarding. However, if we don't pay attention to the security of our social media profiles, it allows strangers to also have the exact same access.

"This is a criminal offence and any such reported incidents will be fully investigated."

If you or anyone you know has been a victim of inappropriate messages received online please contact Cheshire Police on 101. Information can also be passed on anonymously via Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555 111.

Cheshire Police is issuing the advice and guidance below to help stay safe online

  • Never accept a friend request from somebody you have never met or do not know in person
  • Check the security settings on all social media profiles and ensure they are set at the maximum level
  • Parents and carers to sit down with children and young people and look through their friends list, deleting anyone who is not known to them or their child
  • It is recommended children under the age of 13 do not use Facebook or similar social media

Policing Priorities Survey – Join the Conversation

Policing Priorities Survey – Join the Conversation

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 09:38 by Jo O'Donoghue

Dear colleague

As the new Police & Crime Commissioner my first priority is to listen to the views of stakeholders and the wider Cheshire public, to ensure that my Police & Crime Plan reflects the policing priorities of Cheshire's diverse communities.

To enable me to gather these views I have today, Tuesday, 14 June, launched a six-week public consultation.

As part of this consultation I will be holding a number of public events and meetings with partners and stakeholder across the county. More »

I am also launching a short online survey where the public and stakeholders can select their priorities. It can be accessed here. By spending a few minutes setting out your priorities you will be making a significant contribution to setting the policing priorities for Cheshire for the next four years. I urge you to join the conversation – and together we can make Cheshire safer and more prosperous.

Best wishes,

David Keane

Police & Crime Commissioner
