Cheshire East invites public comment on the next phase of the Local Plan

The draft site allocations and development policies document (SADPD), which forms the second part of the council's Local Plan, once finalised, will complete the approved framework for housing, employment and other key infrastructure up to 2030.

The document sets out detailed planning policies to guide decisions on planning applications as well as identifying new sites for small-scale developments. The majority of development needs have already been provided for through the Local Plan Strategy.

The document is available online and residents can comment directly via an online consultation portal on the council's website, via this link: or simply type 'Cheshire East site allocations plan' into a search engine and follow the links.

Hard copies of the consultation documents and supporting reports will be available at the council's offices at Macclesfield Town Hall, Westfields in Sandbach and Delamere House in Crewe. The main consultation documents are also available at local libraries during their normal opening hours.

Response forms will be available at all of these venues which can be posted back to:
Strategic Planning
Cheshire East Council
1st Floor Westfields
C/O Municipal Buildings
Earle Street
Crewe CW1 2BJ

Alternatively, responses will also be accepted by email to localplan@cheshireeast.gov.uk These should include attachments of completed consultation forms. The deadline for receipt of comments by the council is 5pm on 30 September.

The council's strategic planning team is available to answer any questions about the consultation and provide assistance to anyone wishing to comment on the SADPD document via the above email address or by phoning 01270 685893.
