Cheshire East Council’s draft development framework for Alderley Park will go under the microscope at a public gathering next week.
The event, part of a six-week consultation exercise, will be held at Nether Alderley Parish Hall on Wednesday, February 11, between 2pm and 7.30pm. Anyone with an interest in the development of the site is welcome to attend.
Rowena Burns, chief executive officer of Manchester Science Partnerships (MSP) said: "MSP's vision is to retain Alderley Park as a world-class life science facility.
“This draft development framework outlines the parameters within which we need to work, to deliver this vision of a home and sustainable campus for high-value, knowledge intensive businesses.
“I would encourage the community to come along to the consultation event and speak to the team about our aspirations for the site.”
The draft framework will set the guidance for future development on the site and will be a material planning consideration in the determination of any future planning application submitted.
Councillor Michael Jones, Leader of Cheshire East Council, said: “We hope that, with the right strategic planning framework in place, we can create a unique, self-sustaining hub for the life science sector at Alderley Park.
“This is an exciting opportunity that is vitally important to our economy.”
Anyone interested can view the draft framework at www.cheshireeast.gov.uk. Copies will also be available to view in Cheshire East libraries and at council offices in Macclesfield, Crewe and Sandbach.
