Welcome to Somerford Parish Council
All local residents are welcome to attend any of the meetings, as members of the public if you have any specific issues that you would like to raise at a Somerford Parish Council Meeting. Social distancing and Government guidelines will be followed.
We are here to talk if you are feeling lonely or to assist with shopping, collecting prescriptions etc.
The Parish Council wish you and your families all the best at these most difficult times.
Cheshire East Borough Council (CEBC) has opened its consultation on its proposals for their changes to the town and parish boundaries which include the abolition of Somerford. A major part of it would move into Congleton Town and the little that is left would be merged with various parts of Hulme Walfield and Somerford Booths to form a new parish.
However, CEBC MUST take into account the views and wishes of residents. If enough of you vote to keep Somerford as an independent parish, then your wishes should prevail. The most important consideration is local opinion – but you must make your opinion known for it to be considered.
Linked below is a letter briefly setting out the proposals; a longer more detailed explanation; and an online response form.
Please take a moment to complete the form and submit your response (you can also download, print and return it to us so we can collect your views). The parish council is also writing to all residents so you should get a letter through your letter box.
