Local Plan moves forward towards consultation and its final stages
February 10, 2016 CEC media release
The revised Local Plan Strategy is set to go before strategic planning board, Cabinet and for approval by Full Council in February, before further extensive public consultation. This will include additional and amended strategic site allocations.
The Council is due to submit the Local Plan Strategy, with any amendments, to the Planning Inspector in June 2016.
Councillor Rachel Bailey, Cheshire East Council Cabinet member in charge of the Local Plan, said: “The positive views expressed by the Inspector have enabled the Council to make amendments to our Local Plan with confidence and publish these for consultation.
“We therefore propose to take a report to a full meeting of the Council at the end of February, setting out proposed amendments to the plan.
“This will include a comprehensive suite of development sites to accommodate the larger scale of growth now planned for the Borough. Following a period of full consultation, during March and April, further examination hearings are expected to be held in early autumn. Read the full Cheshire East press release.
