Clock is ticking for Local Plan

Cheshire East Leader on BBC1’s Sunday Politics today told Arif Ansari that with the delay of the Local Plan CE now plans to “Go forward hard on Neighbourhood Plans, fast tracking 14 with others on the way”.
Esther McVey seemed to dodge the question when Arif asked if perhaps part of the problem was the government putting “presumption in favour” of planning in the NPPF so that Cheshire East can’t control the developers.  She replied that what the government is about “is making sure that people on the ground” can have a say, “because everyone is talking about localism”.  Tricky for locals to have their say with no Local Plan, no 5 yr supply and an NPPF that favours development.
As Arif said, the clock is ticking.
