Have your say on the future of transport in Cheshire West and Chester


December 2023

Cheshire West and Chester Council is starting a conversation on the future of transport, and we would like to know what you think.

This will form the basis of the borough’s fourth Local Transport Plan.

Share your views on FlexiLink


September 2023

Cheshire East Council have launched a consultation exercise designed to capture the views of all interested parties on proposals for its FlexiLink service as it looks to improve and modernise its offer to passengers.

FlexiLink is a flexible bus service that provides shared transport to users who specify their desired location and time of pick-up and drop-off. FlexiLink provides access to key services (such as shopping and health services) for those residents who are eligible:

• The service is available to those who are aged 80+, have a disability, or live beyond the reach of any other public transport

• The current fare is £3 per journey or free if you have a concessionary bus pass

• The core hours of the service are between 9.30am and 2.30pm Monday to Friday

• The FlexiLink service currently picks service users up from their own home

• All journeys must be pre-booked at least 48 hours in advance via telephone

Cheshire East Council are currently reviewing the FlexiLink service to understand how the service has been performing, with an assessment of efficiency, affordability and value for money. The review so far has identified a number of significant challenges, including low levels of demand, under-utilised vehicles and often inefficient vehicle use due to a lack of automated routing and scheduling software. We have therefore identified a set of potential proposals to expand & improve the service, ensuring it is more efficient, cost effective and sustainable.

The draft proposals in summary are:

• Expanding the eligibility criteria to serve a wider population

• Expanding the current operating hours and days

• Improving the integration with the mainstream bus network

• Modernising the booking and scheduling system

• Introducing a new fare structure, including a charge for concessionary pass holders.

The public consultation will run for eight weeks from 7 August until 30 September 2023. You can complete the consultation online at:


People can also request alternative formats of the consultation by contacting the council’s customer contact centre on 0300 123 5500. Printed copies will be available in local libraries.

Tackling Waste Crime - 3 simple questions


June 2023

Whether you’re in an urban or rural part of Cheshire, the sight and environmental impact of illegally dumped waste is not something residents should have to endure.

And for many of the criminals who dump this waste, it is far from their worst offence. We know that sinister gangs use seemingly legitimate waste disposal companies as a cover for county lines and other serious criminal activity.

Through our Waste Crime Partnership I am working with Cheshire’s four Local Authorities, the Environment Agency, and the Constabulary on better ways to share data and target these criminals.

But with a potential fine of up to £5,000 for illegally dumped waste that can be traced back to you, residents need to be vigilant and ensure they don’t accidentally hand their waste over to criminals just because it seems convenient. That’s why the Waste Crime Partnership is encouraging residents to ask three simple questions whenever a company pops up on sites like Facebook and Nextdoor, or knocks on their door:

  • What is your official company name?
  • What is your waste permit number?
  • Will you be able to provide a waste transfer note?

Any legitimate business should be able to answer these three simple questions. If they can’t then residents shouldn’t risk a potential £5,000 fine.
