Have your say on The Local Plan (Part Two)
8 August 2016The Cheshire West and Chester Local Plan will provide the overall vision, strategic objectives, spatial strategy and strategic planning policies for the borough to 2030. The Local Plan (Part One) is the starting point when considering planning applications and will be supported by the Local Plan (Part Two) Land Allocations and Detailed Policies Plan.
Cheshire West and Chester Council are now asking for the views of residents and businesses on the Local Plan (Part Two) Land Allocations and Detailed Policies.
Included within the plan are sites identified to meet employment needs at Gadbrook (Rudheath), Chowley Oak, Hampton Heath and Farndon and the safeguarding of a route for the Chester Western Relief Road and fifth Park and Ride at Hoole.
Councillor Brian Clarke, Cabinet Member for Economic Development and Infrastructure said: “I would encourage residents and businesses to respond to the Local Plan (Part Two) consultation. This plan is an important document that will help shape development and environmental protection in the borough through to 2030.”
Key issues such as Green Belt boundaries, the number of new homes to be built and how much employment land should be provided were adopted last year in Part One.
The role of the Part Two plan is to provide additional detail to the Part One policies and allocate sites to meet the needs already identified.
Consultation will start on 12 August with comments to be received by 5pm on Friday 23 September. Copies of the plan will be available at local libraries, customer service centres and on the Council’s website at: www.cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk/localplan
