Time is nearly up if you want to get involved in the latest round of the Local Plan consultation.
The ‘Possible Additional Sites’ consultation closes on Thursday, May 30.
Responses received to the recent Local Plan consultation, in January and February 2013, have revealed a number of possible strategic sites that developers and landowners consider suitable for inclusion in the Local Plan, as well as other strategic sites that have been brought to the attention of the Council in recent months, as the plan-making process has progressed.
The Local Plan will be finalised this year, which will help to protect Cheshire East from unplanned, unsustainable development throughout the Borough.
Councillor David Brown, Cabinet member in charge of strategic communities, said:
“These possible additional sites have been proposed by developers and land interests. We are asking for the views of the people of Cheshire East as the Council has reached no views on the merits of these sites.
“If you are interested in the future of Cheshire East, it is vital that you take the time to give us your views. In progressing the next stage of our Local Plan we need to be sure that we have considered all reasonable alternatives in terms of our strategy and potential development sites.”
The latest consultation document can be found at: www.cheshireeast.gov.uk/localplan where you can have your say until Thursday, May 30, when the Local Plan consultation ends.
The ‘Possible Additional Sites’ consultation document is also available to view at any of our libraries, or by visiting the Council’s Delamere House, in Crewe; Macclesfield Town Hall; and the Council’s headquarters at Westfields, in Sandbach.
The new Local Plan aims to promote economic growth, improve connectivity and protect the Cheshire East countryside from unsustainable, unplanned development for the next 20 years.
