Cheshire East Council has smashed its own target after receiving more than 6,500 responses to the Local Plan consultation.
The consultation, which ran for four weeks from the end of August, has so far exceeded the 4,000 target set by the Council's campaign team, who are still counting!
The consultation was widely publicised, appearing in the Cheshire East News magazine, libraries, local newspapers, radio and road shows, as well digital media channels, Facebook and Twitter.
Council Leader, Councillor Michael Jones, who fronted the radio and press campaign, said: "This is brilliant news and is a sure sign that people are engaging in the issues that really affect them and, at the vital stage."
The next stage of the Local Plan consultation will take place over the winter months. This will focus on the development strategy for the whole of Cheshire East when, once again, the views of residents and businesses will be sought.
