Cheshire East Services
Cheshire East Council has changed the way it will deliver its services by moving individual service areas into separate but wholly owned companies. Given the scale of budget cuts CEC has to contend with, this represents a move to deliver more for less and to allow the expertise for delivery to be concentrated in smaller companies.
Many people who have worked in large industries over the last 10 or more years will have seen the private sector's attempt to do something similar. The results in the private sector have been variable with many large companies eventually taking the delivery of services back into the centralised business as projected benefits have been hard to realise. How will it work out for Cheshire East and its customers? Time will tell. Will this lead to complete privatisation of the service areas?
