The Building an Inclusive Economy engagement exercise has now closed.

Thank you to everyone who took part, your feedback is helping the Council decide what to do next.

We are currently looking at what you told us in detail to write a report that summarises your feedback.

The findings will be discussed by the Council’s Cabinet in February 2022. Information about the meeting is available on the Council's website here.


As we build back from COVID, the Council is committed to working with residents, businesses and partners to support a greener, fairer and stronger local economy that works for everyone.

West Cheshire has a relatively prosperous economy worth over £10.5 billion each year, but not everyone is benefitting from this. We have large gaps between neighbourhoods in levels of deprivation, poverty and in life expectancy across the Borough. The Council wants to work with residents and partners to help build a thriving, inclusive local economy that enables all our residents, businesses and places to flourish.

There are a number of areas we want to focus on that we think will deliver the greatest benefits. Read more about them here.

  • Employment and Skills
  • Building Better Places and Community Regeneration
  • Protecting the Environment and Green Spaces
  • Housing and Transport
  • Business Best Practice and Support
  • Increasing local impact from Anchor Institutions.

This is a long-term vision for the borough. The conversation around an inclusive economy will not end with the closing of this engagement, there will be more opportunities to get involved in the future.
