The report outlined proposals for the establishment of a Cheadle Town Centre Delivery Board, supported by a Stakeholder Panel, to oversee development and delivery of town centre projects. This included an options appraisal for the emerging Cheadle town centre Masterplan and the High Streets Task Force programme of activity. The report also provided an update on progress with regards to the Cheadle Town Centre Options Appraisal Report and the High Streets Task Force and sought to agree next steps.
Option 1 (recommended) – that the Council approved the proposals for establishment of a Cheadle Town Centre Delivery Board and Stakeholder Panel and noted the progress on Cheadle town centre projects.
Option 2 (not recommended) – that the Council did not approve the proposals for establishment of a Cheadle Town Centre Board, to be supported by a Panel of Stakeholders. This was not recommended. There was potential for significant change in Cheadle arising from the implementation of proposals in the emerging Masterplan and recommendations from the High Street Task Force. Effective partnership working would be required to deliver this change. Without a Board of partners to help direct and coordinate activities, there was a risk that the views and resources of some stakeholders may be lost to the process and the Council would not be in a position to capitalise on opportunities for added value from the work of a range of partners.
1. That the proposals for the establishment of a Cheadle Town Centre Delivery Board and Stakeholder Panel, as set out in the report be approved.
2. That the progress on current Cheadle town centre projects be noted.
