Cheshire East Council received more than 2,700 responses during its recent consultation on its draft site allocations and development policies document (SADPD).
The purpose of the SADPD, which forms the second part of the council's Local Plan, is to set out detailed planning policies to guide decisions on planning applications as well as identifying additional smaller-scale sites for development.
The majority of development needs have already been provided for via the Local Plan Strategy, which came into force in July 2017.
Because of the significant number of representations received about the SADPD, it is now expected that decisions about its policies and proposals will be made over the summer.
Councillor Toni Fox, Cheshire East Council cabinet member for planning, said: "I'm really pleased with the level of interest shown in the plan. As expected, we received a wide range of views on the plan's draft policies and development sites -- from residents, local councils, developers and other organisations. We are carefully working through these.
"We have made it clear that we will listen very carefully to what everyone has to say and keep an open mind about making further changes to the plan, if needed, acknowledging that this may require a further round of public consultation prior to its submission to the secretary of state for examination."
Questions about the SADPD can be directed to the council's strategic planning team. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01270 685893.
