Place Shaping Consultation Market Events – Cheshire East Council


Cheshire East Council is holding the latest phase of public engagement on the Local Development Framework, called the ‘Place Shaping’ consultation.

Officers from the local authority’s spatial planning team are working closely with the people of Cheshire East to look at the issues and challenges facing town and village communities.

The latest phase will see officers taking consultation on to the streets of our town centres, where members of the public can talk to the Council about the future planning of their town or village.

The aim is to find out how people think the towns and villages should look in the future – including identifying sites for housing, employment development, shops and recreation facilities. This is your chance to have your say.

Cheshire East Council has been holding a host of consultation events over the summer that members of the public can get involved in. The latest market events have already been held this week in Congleton and Alsager. Further ones taking place this week and next week are at:

Sandbach Market, Thursday, August 11, The Commons, next to Market Hall, 10am- 


Crewe Market, Friday, August 12, Lyceum Square, 10am-2pm;

Macclesfield Market, Tuesday, August 16, Outside the Grosvenor Shopping Centre,


Nantwich Market, Thursday, August 18, outside Nantwich Market Hall, 10am-2pm;

Knutsford Market, Friday, August 19, 10am-2pm;

Middlewich Market, Tuesday, August 23, Southway Car Park, 10am-2pm.

These events are open to all members of the public.

There will also be a short questionnaire to ask for people’s views on the issues facing their town or village. Cheshire East would be really interested to hear people’s opinions, and is encouraging everyone to take the time to complete the questionnaire – even if you can’t attend the exhibitions.

Further exhibitions will be held, in September, in Poynton, Wilmslow, Knutsford, Macclesfield, Nantwich, Handforth, Crewe and Shavington.

Councillor David Brown, Cabinet member with responsibility for performance and capacity said: “This is an excellent opportunity for people to have a say on shaping the future of their local communities. We would encourage people of all ages – and especially younger people – and as many people as possible to make time to get involved in this process and fill in the questionnaire.

“This plan will determine our development over the next 20 years, so it is vitally important that we have as much public input as possible.”
