Make it Macclesfield Meeting Update

townhall st michaelsAt its September 12th meeting the Cheshire East Cabinet reviewed and approved a Consultation Draft of a new five year Vision, Strategy and Action Plan for Macclesfield. The Draft is now open for a consultation period that will close on Wednesday 15th November and can be downloaded HERE. It is also available for viewing at Macclesfield Library.

The Plan taken forward after this consultation will set the framework for the development of our Town Centre not just for the next five years but for the long term and the MIM Board would encourage all members of the community to ensure that their voices are heard in this important consultation process.

With that in mind we are holding a Public Meeting at 7.30pm on Thursday 2nd November in the Assembly Room in Macclesfield Town Hall to encourage debate on the proposals being put forward for consultation by the Council.

We are very pleased that Professor Cathy Parker, Chair of the Institute of Place Management at MMU, has agreed to chair the discussion. As well as the MiM team, contributors to the debate will include:

Peaks and Plains Housing Trust
Macclesfield for Business
The Macclesfield Heritage, Culture and Arts Forum
Macclesfield Civic Society
The Digital and Creative Community
Macclesfield Town Council
Macclesfield College
David Rutley MP

So if you’d like to engage in what we hope will be a lively debate about the future of our town then why not register at Eventbrite HERE
