A set of priorities has been set by CWAC. "To ensure we close the budget gap we will need to make difficult choices and introduce new ways of working".
CWAC want to encourage the public to have their say on their plans and spending priorities before they finalise the Council Plan.
A consultation is taking place from October 2015 to early January 2016 during which time you can take part and tell CWAC about your priorities and the things that are important to you.

Fracking for shale gas
IGas Energy seismic surveys in our area - completed
The latest leaflets dropping through your door explaining the process of seismic surveys taking place in our area (which now seem to have extended southwards from Helsby to Tarvin) omit one essential word from the leaflets and that is FRACKING.
The Bowland Shale (map above) is the only significant area of shale gas in the UK containing an estimated 1329 trillion cubic feet of gas. Only a small proportion of this is commercially extractable. To provide reliable estimates of where extractable reserve gas lies, wells are drilled, maps are consulted and seismic surveys are performed. Such seismic surveys have been carried out in the areas of Ince, Stoke, Thornton-Le-Moors, Little Stanney, Elton and Frodsham Marsh and are now extending southwards towards Tarvin.
The surveys have now been completed in the areas around Guilden Sutton and Mickle Trafford. Those academically or geologically interested in the outcome of what lies beneath us will probably have to wait until the results appear in possible planning applications for exploratory drilling in the area.
