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 is now 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.

It is very important that you vote in the referendum if you wish to have a say in development in Alderley Edge. Look out for more information. You will receive your postal vote or polling card in the same way as you would for any election/referendum.

Thank you for your time and interest.
