Cheshire East Council Local Plan: Pre-Submission Core Strategy Consultation: 5th November to 16th December 2013
As you may know, Cheshire East Council has undertaken significant public consultation, since work began on the preparation of the Local Plan, in the Autumn of 2010.
Following the full consideration of all the comments received from public consultations and the information contained within the comprehensive evidence base, that has been gathered to support the development of the Plan, the Council has produced the 'Pre-Submission Core Strategy' document.
This document sets out where the future housing, employment and other development will take place and provides a clear indication of the vision that Cheshire East Council has for the Borough, in terms of how it will grow and develop, to the year 2030 and beyond.
The 'Pre-Submission Core Strategy' document is now undergoing a six week period of consultation, from 5th November to 16th December 2013.
The document is supported by a draft Sustainability Appraisal, Habitats Regulations Assessment and the 'Non-Preferred Sites' (a document which sets out the other sites that have been considered for inclusion in the Core Strategy, at previous stages in the process.) These documents are also available for public consultation.
Copies of the consultation documents and a Draft Infrastructure Delivery Plan can be inspected, during the consultation period, on the Cheshire East website by clicking here and in the Customer Service Points in Crewe and Macclesfield and the Council's headquarters at Westfields, Sandbach.
These documents (apart from the Sustainability Appraisal and the Habitats Regulations Assessment) are also available for inspection at all of the libraries and the Planning Help Desk, Municipal Buildings, Crewe.
A significant amount of detailed research and evidence has been gathered, to inform the Plan and is now available to view on the Cheshire East web site www.cheshireeast.gov.uk/localplan.
This includes background papers on housing and employment; the sites that are proposed for development and an assessment of the existing Green Belt, amongst others. All of this research and evidence has been used to produce the 'Pre-Submission Core Strategy' document.
When considering the consultation documents, you will find it useful to also look at the research and evidence; this will enable you to make considered and informed comments. The comments form also asks you to set out how, as a result of your comments, you would like the 'Pre-Submission Core Strategy' document to be changed (if at all).
If you would like to comment on any of the research and evidence documents that have been produced, please ensure that this is done by relating your comments to a specific Policy in the 'Pre-Submission Core Strategy' document.
