Cheshire East Council acts to strengthen its planning framework

Cheshire East Council is to move forward on the next phase of Cheshire East’s development plan.

The site allocations and development policies document (SADPD), which forms the second part of the council’s Local Plan, was considered by members of the authority’s cabinet today.

Members agreed to move towards the next round of public consultation on the draft document which, once finalised, will provide the approved framework for housing, employment, and other key infrastructure sites up to 2030.

Following directly on from the Local Plan Strategy adopted in 2017, the SADPD provides detailed policies to guide new development, including housing – and also allocates a limited amount of new development, mainly within the smaller towns and larger villages.

The majority of development needs have already been provided for through the Local Plan Strategy.
