The Cheshire West and Chester 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 where land should be protected from development. Our Local Plan also sets out how new development should take place by setting out policies on the design of buildings and how trees should be protected.

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 priorities.

We are thinking about whether the Council’s current Local Plan needs to be updated to reflect changing circumstances and new priorities such as the climate emergency, poverty and health and we would like you to join the conversation to help us decide whether we need to the change the plan.

The consultation will run from Wednesday 23 June 2021 to 5pm on Wednesday 15 September 2021.
