RESIDENTS have just one week left to have their say on children’s centres in the town.
The consultation period, which is being carried out ahead of a children’s centres shake-updue to council cuts, will close on August 22.
Under proposed plans, seven of the 12 centres will face changes but no details have been finalised.
A ‘super’ centre will be created in Sankey with all Sankey Valley Children’s Centre and Callands Children’s Centre relocating to the hub - although the most vital services will remain in Callands.
The Lymm, Culcheth and Woolston children’s centres will no longer be official children’s centres run by the council but will be managed by alternative services with talks currently taking place with the NHS and LiveWire.
Cygnets in Appleton and Woodlands in Birchwood will also no longer be categoried as an official children’s centre but will still provide the services the council claim people need the most.
The changes are expected to reduce council spending by up to £300,000.
