A NEW five-year plan is being launched to improve the health and wellbeing of residents.

Cheshire West and Cheshire Council and the NHS are developing an exciting proposal to make the area a better place to live well in so people can enjoy life to the full.

Council leader Cllr Louise Gittins said, “We want everybody in Cheshire West to have a happy and healthy life. The plan sets out what organisations like the Council, the local NHS and the voluntary sector can do to support people to achieve this.

"Our vision is for people to have better physical and mental health and more years of healthy life.”

The council and the NHS want to hear what residents think of the draft plan. It is important that you have a chance to influence the final content.

Anyone who lives in the borough can get involved by visiting cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk/placeplanconsultation and completing an online questionnaire.

Local discussions on the plan will be held at the Lifestyle Centre in Winsford on Monday, August 12 from 1pm to 2.30pm.

Anyone wishing to take part in the discussion session is asked to complete a short registration form to confirm your place at smartsurvey.co.uk/s/PlacePlanDiscussionGroups.
