Welcome to the Sustainable Cheshire Forum website.

Published by:

These pages have been produced to provide you with information on Local Agenda 21 and sustainable development issues in Cheshire. “Local Agenda 21” is basically a local action plan for improving everyones quality of life in the 21st Century, for now, and for generations to come. This means ensuring that we achieve “sustainable development”, that is, development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the needs of those in the future.

The Sustainable Cheshire Forum is a voluntary group of different public, private and community organisations which came together in 1996 to develop Cheshire’s Local Agenda 21 Strategy, and continues to champion sustainable environment issues within Cheshire’s Community Strategy. Within the Forum there are a number of specialist Task Groups who focus on particular issues.
