CONSULTATION

”Cheshire West and Chester Council, on behalf of the Charter Trustees for the City of Chester, is seeking the views of residents on the future of the civic and ceremonial activities of the Lord Mayor, Deputy Lord Mayor and the Sheriff of Chester. The Charter Trustees for the City of Chester were established in April 2009, following local government reorganisation, to preserve and protect the City of Chester’s historic rights, privileges and traditions which otherwise would have been lost when Chester City Council was abolished. The appointment of the Lord Mayor of Chester, Deputy Lord Mayor of Chester and the Sheriff of Chester transferred from the local authority to the Charter Trustees.
From April 2017, it is proposed that only the residents in the Chester Charter Trustee area (shown in the consultation document and on the online survey) will meet the costs for the Lord Mayor, Deputy Lord Mayor and Sheriff of Chester, rather than the costs being met by the residents of the wider Cheshire West and Chester borough area. Based on current expenditure levels, it is expected that the precept for Chester residents will be in the region of £5.50 per year for a Band D property.”
