SPRING 2012 REPORT
Despite difficult economic conditions, Cheshire West and Chester Council had its Budget Council on 23 February when the Council Tax for 2012/13 was frozen for second year and an extra 0.25% rebate was given.
On February 16 we were pleased to be able to host the Community Forum for Weaver & Cuddington Ward at Cuddinton & Sandiway Village Hall, where residents came from across the ward and its parishes of Acton Bridge, Cuddington, Dutton and Weaverham.
Cheshire West and Chester has recently been chosen as one of 4 pilot areas across the country for a Community Budgets scheme which from 2013 may allow all services provided by the public, community and voluntary sectors to be funded from one “local pot”. Further details at www.cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk
Through our Member Grant system we have been able to help local community projects and since the Autumn Update we have been able to use this to help fund a number projects accross the ward. We are keen to help even more local community projects, so if you have one, please let us know. Full details of the projects we have supported across Weaver and Cuddington Ward can be found atwww.weaverandcuddington.yourcllr.com/community-grants/

Autumn 2011 Report
In July we hosted a meeting of the 4 Parish Councils in the Weaver and Cuddington Ward (Acton Bridge, Cuddington, Dutton and Weaverham) to discuss common issues such as Localism and Planning, together with future issues to work more closely together on, such as speeding on the A49 and B5153 Northwich Road.
CWC is continuing to invest in road improvements with resurfacing taking place across several main roads within Weaverham this summer. CWC recently won a Gold Award for dealing with potholes and it was able to do this with the help of the people of the borough letting us know about roads and other issues online at:
Clearly there are difficult economic decisions to make as CWC deals with a reduction of funding as part of the Coalition Government’s deficit reduction package. CWC Council has launched an interactive tool to consult with residents over next year’s Council Budget. The website is open until 30 November at: http://youchoose.yougov.com/CheshireWestandChester
In Weaverham, following the demolition of Block A by CWC enforcement team, Village Close has now been sold by the receivers to a new company and hopefully this long saga will draw to a close and the houses can be repaired and re-populated.
Through our Member Grant system we have been able to help local community projects such as CCTV for Weaverham Community Centre, supporting the Cuddington Gala, new leaflets for Weaverham History Society, supporting the Summer Play scheme at Weaverham High School, the August Northwich Festival, providing webcoverage of the ongoing TATA Northwich Incinerator Planning Inquiry, supporting the Northwich Beer Festival, supporting the Royal British Legion North Group 90th Anniversary event and the refurbishment at Cuddington 1st Scouts. We are keen to help even more local community projects, so if you have one, please let us know.
