A public consultation to seek views on a draft Play Strategy for the borough will close on Sunday 31st July.

The draft strategy has been developed in close collaboration between Cheshire West and Chester Council and local partners, such as town and parish councils, voluntary sector organisations, community groups and housing associations.

The draft Play Strategy consists of:

A borough-wide strategy that provides guidance on policy and best practice in outdoor public play provision

Four Locality Play Improvement Frameworks, covering Chester, Ellesmere Port, Northwich/Winsford and Rural.
These provide a detailed analysis of current and potential play spaces and outdoor youth facilities in communities across the borough.

Any resident, community group, school, other stakeholder interested in play can comment by viewing the draft play strategy documents online, and completing either an online or postal questionnaire, which can be found at:
