Council Leaders Respond to Government's decision to move Cheshire West and Chester, Cheshire East and Warrington into Tier 3

23 December 2020

Responding to the government’s decision to move Cheshire West and Chester, Cheshire East and Warrington into Tier 3, the Council leaders commented:

“We are deeply disappointed to see the recent acceleration of rates of infection across Cheshire, and the impact on our local NHS.  Our communities and businesses have played their part in avoiding tier 3 restrictions up to this point, and we want to pay tribute to them, and to our local public health teams, for their amazing dedication and commitment.  While we agree that additional restrictions have become necessary, the government’s decision to implement them at this time will have a devastating impact on our hospitality businesses and their employees.  We therefore call on the government to provide additional support for those affected, and the local resources we need to turn this situation around as quickly as possible.  The councils will continue to do all we can to support our communities at this challenging time.”
