How It Works
Over the last 4 years a small group of volunteers has worked hard to produce a Neighbourhood Plan for Alderley Edge. The group comprises residents, Councillors and local business owners.
It has been hard work. The Plan process has to follow a number of strict rules set down in law. It has to involve a lot of consultation. The group has drawn up questionnaires, analysed the results and held public meetings to find out more about the priorities of the community.
The result of their work is a document that sets out draft policies that the group believes reflect your views.
What happens next?
The Neighbourhood Plan group has spent a lot of time assessing the results of previous consultations and surveys. It has taken account of data provided by Cheshire East Council and the output from its draft Local Plan. It has used all this to set out some suggested policies covering four areas of village life:
These policies are set out in detail in the full report.
Alderley Edge Neighbourhood Development Referendum Plan 2021
The NDP was subjected to an independent examination in late 2020 / early 2021. The examiner's report concluded that, subject to the policy modifications set out in the examiner's report, the Plan meets the Basic Conditions.
The NDP will then be subject to a local referendum on 6th May 2021.
If there is a Yes vote in the local referendum, then the NDP will be made (adopted) by CEC and will become part of the statutory development plan used to determine planning applications in Alderley Edge until 2030.
