Should we update the Local Plan?

The Local Plan is one of the Council’s most important documents as it sets out how the area should be developed in the future.

The current Local Plan runs to 2030 and sets out, amongst other things, how many new homes are needed and where they should be built but also what new buildings should look like and where land and trees should be protected from development.

Our Local Plan is kept under regular review to determine whether a new Plan is needed or if some policies need to change to reflect changing circumstances and new priorities such as the climate emergency, poverty and health.

This consultation is seeking your views to help us decide whether we need to the change the plan.

To help you, we have come up with six themes that may be important in considering how to plan Cheshire West in the future: Climate; Jobs; Homes; Health; Travel; and Environment.
