Local Plan Consultations

The second document of our new local plan is the 'Site Allocations and Development Policies Document' (SADPD).

This document contains more detailed planning policies, and further site allocations. It will replace the detailed policies from the local plans from the former districts (Congleton; Crewe and Nantwich; and Macclesfield). Once adopted, the SADPD policies will be used alongside the Local Plan Strategy policies to determine planning applications.

You can view more information about this consultation, and give your views, via our local plan consultations webpage.

This consultation will close on 22 October 2018.

Cheshire East Council is responsible for ensuring that certain sexual health services are available in Cheshire East.
