Cheshire East Council is consulting on a proposed new housing strategy, setting out the authority's vision and priorities for housing until 2023.

The council is profiling the value and importance of quality housing in people's lives, wellbeing, communities and the economy.

Nationally, it is estimated the country needs to build more than 250,000 new homes each year.

The borough's Local Plan includes provision for a housing requirement of at least 36,000 new homes and 380 hectares of land for business, general industrial and storage and distribution uses up until 2030.

This is to reflect a strong anticipated jobs growth rate of around 1,600 jobs per year, or 31,400 by 2030.

The draft housing strategy consultation began on Monday November 27th and continues until Monday January 8th 2018.

You can email the strategic housing team at: housingpolicy@cheshireeast.gov.uk or contact strategic housing on 0300 123 5500.

The draft housing strategy can be viewed here on the Cheshire East website.
