Crewe Green Roundabout - Proposed changes
Crewe Green Roundabout is an existing signal controlled roundabout which forms a major access point to Crewe from the East, serving a combination of traffic originating from local towns and villages as well as from the M6 at Junctions 16 and 17. Work has been undertaken by Cheshire East Council to develop solutions, which provide the required junction capacity to meet traffic demands up until 2030. This work has identified four potential design options.
Please fill in our online questionnaire to provide your feedback on the scheme. All responses must be received by 26 August 2016. A preferred option will be selected in October 2016 and there will be a formal pre-planning public consultation in Spring 2017.
Reaseheath Local Development Order
Cheshire East Council is seeking to adopt a Local Development Order (LDO) to enable a simplified regime planning for specified development on the Reaseheath College Campus.
The LDO is part of a pilot initiative with the Department for Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) for the creation of Food Enterprise Zones across the country which will help unlock the potential of local food and farming businesses, boosting local economies and attracting more investment.
In preparing the draft LDO , the Council in conjunction with Reaseheath College has produced a range of supporting evidence which can be viewed online (with hard copies also available to view at Nantwich Library during the consultation period).
We would welcome your views on the development proposals and the suitability of the LDO approach to guide future investment in the area. Unlike a formal planning application, the LDO seeks to describe the form of development to be permitted rather than present a specific scheme.
This ensures flexibility is retained through the life of the LDO (15 years from its adoption) although there are clear safeguards included in the conditions to direct the form, appearance and materials used in the developments as they come forward over time and to protect the local wildlife and ecology.
Further details of the proposals can be found in the following documents:
- Local development order (LDO) – Consent order (PDF, 392KB)
- Statement of reasons (PDF, 290KB)
- Design statement (PDF, 6MB)

- Tree survey report (PDF, 4.4MB)
- Bat activity survey - July 2016 (PDF, 717KB)
- LDO frequently asked questions (FAQs) (PDF, 172KB)
Please note, the consultation will remain open until Friday 9 September 2016. An informal ‘drop-in’ session will be held at Reaseheath College on Thursday 1 September 2016 where members of the project team will be available to assist with any questions about the development proposals and the LDO process. Further details of this session can be found on the event invitation (PDF, 166KB)
Officers will then review all the responses received from the public, local organisations and statutory bodies. The Council may revise the draft proposals in light of the consultation responses and should the LDO proceed, it will be submitted to the Strategic Planning Board for final determination.
Any queries or comments on the consultation can be emailed to: ReaseheathLDO@cheshireeast.gov.uk
Cheshire East Wellness Service - Brand Name Vote
Cheshire East Council is excited to launch a new service aimed at improving the health of local residents. It will do this by offering support concerning:
- Doing more exercise
- Eating healthily
- Giving up smoking
- Losing weight
- Reducing consumption of alcohol
You can read more background about the service by looking at the integrated system consultation document (PDF, 2.8MB). The service is likely to launch fully in October.
Please can you help us select the final name of the service by completing this short survey. Results will be used to identify a suitable name which will then inform a wider branding activity and second consultation.
Responses must be received by the 5th September 2016.
Cheshire East Council believes that a mixed approach to transport is important for the future growth and development of the town.
Middlewich faces a number of transport challenges both now and in the future. New housing and employment sites are planned over the coming years, which will further increase demand on the local road and public transport networks. The council is working to deliver a new eastern bypass and a new rail station. But we know that more needs to be done to respond to local needs.
Please fill in our online questionnaire to provide your feedback on the scheme. All responses must be received by 16 September 2016.
Reducing Alcohol Harm
Excessive alcohol consumption has significant negative impacts on individuals, families, communities and businesses.
The costs of dealing with or responding to alcohol related harm are in excess of £136 million across Cheshire East (costs to the NHS, the Police, the local authority and local businesses) and the impacts on our residents and communities are evident in the numbers of people being treated or admitted to hospital for alcohol related ill health, the number of violent incidents where alcohol was involved and the numbers of children and young people whose lives and future prospects are affected because of their or their family’s excessive drinking.
Please respond by the 3rd October 2016 by completing the questionnaire. Your feedback on the document will inform the final version that will be published later this year and used to prioritise activity to reduce alcohol related harm within Cheshire East in the future.
Macclesfield Local Development Order
The Council seeks your views on how two Local Development Orders (LDOs) should be implemented in Macclesfield. The two LDO areas are located within Macclesfield Town Centre and their use is intended to encourage the redevelopment of brownfield sites, particularly for residential use.
Results of the survey will inform the area included within each LDO. At present red line boundaries have been drawn up for the sites and we now seek feedback on whether these boundaries are correct and whether LDOs are a good idea for these sites.
Please fill in our online survey to provide your feedback on the draft boundaries. All responses must be received by 5pm on the 13th September 2016.
In addition to this survey there will be a public drop-in session at Macclesfield Town Hall on 6 September 2016, from 2.00pm until 7.00pm. Any further comments can be sent to MacclesfieldLDOs@cheshireeast.gov.uk
Countryside parks and rangers service
If you have recently attended one of the Ranger Service events or visited one of the sites we manage, we really want to hear from you. Please help us to improve our sites and events by completing our two surveys.
Search for individual planning applications to make your comments. Your views are also sought on planning policies and major developments.
Consult on license applications for sale of alcohol, entertainment, gambling premises and street trading and others.
Give notice of consultations or information relating to changes.
