Petition on Respite Care
At the Cheshire East Council meeting on 22 October, Charlotte Peters-Rock presented a petition with over 4,000 signatures asking for Cheshire East Council to re-open and keep open public intermediate care, dementia care and respite care.
The Conservative Cabinet member proposed that the petition be received and that no further action be taken. The Labour group argued that more should be done in response to the petition and proposed an amendment that the Council should keep open Hollins View and Lincoln House for in-house respite care for the foreseeable future.
In a named vote the amendment was lost with all Conservative Councillors voting against. All Labour and other opposition councillors voted for the amendment apart from one councillor from Alderley Edge.
