If the answer is yes, you have the ideal opportunity through the Wilmslow Neighbourhood Plan. The Plan will set out the vision for Wilmslow; and once approved it will be a statutory document which can influence planning decisions over the next 15 years.
The Plan is being driven by a steering group of volunteers, all of whom are Wilmslow residents. They will spend 2016-2018 consulting with all Wilmslow residents, businesses, community groups and other stakeholders about the content of the plan. Following the consultations, the Steering Group will draft a detailed planning document – the Neighbourhood Plan. At this stage all Wilmslow residents who are over 18 will have the opportunity to vote in a referendum, enabling them to either accept or reject the Plan. At the same time there will also be a separate referendum of all Wilmslow businesses. Click here to find out more about Neighbourhood Plans.
This process is key to planning the future growth and prosperity of Wilmslow. We would therefore urge you to have your say.
Thank you for participating in the recent consultation on the Draft Wilmslow Neighbourhood Plan.
The consultation has resulted in many responses being received which the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group, in partnership with its Planning Consultants, will now analyse to establish if the individual comments relate to matters that fit within the scope of the Neighbourhood Plan and then if so to determine if the relevant section of the plan would benefit from amendment.
When the Neighbourhood Plan Group has completed this work it will produce a revised draft plan for submission to Cheshire East Council.
As you have participated in this formal consultation the Principle Council will contact you directly when it undertakes its own consultation as part of the established Neighbourhood Planning process and this is likely to be towards the end of this year.
After all of the statutory legal processes have taken place we hope that the Wilmslow Neighbourhood Plan will proceed to referendum during early 2019.
Once again I thank you for giving your time to trying to make the Wilmslow Neighbourhood Plan the best document that it can be.
