Cheshire East to work with villages on details of Local Plan
Cheshire East Council is set to engage with villages and rural areas over the detailed stages of the Local Plan.
The Local Plan has focused, thus far, on larger towns and the main strategic development sites. As this stage nears completion, the Council will start to focus at a more detailed level.
Cheshire East Council Deputy Leader Councillor David Brown, Cabinet member in charge of strategic communities, said: “We want to work closely with villages and rural parishes to ensure we get a detailed planning framework in place.
“We want to hear from villages about their future development needs – for businesses, recreation or community facilities.
“The recent assessment showing Cheshire East has a five-year supply of housing land should also provide the opportunity for a more measured approach to housing, giving time for local communities to consider their future requirements.”
