Alderley Park Development Framework

AstraZeneca’s planned withdrawal of their research and development function from Alderley Park, Nether Alderley, has resulted in a need to consider the future of this strategic site.

The re-purposing of the site post AstraZeneca's planned withdrawal is likely to generate proposals for development of parts of the site. The Alderley Park Development Framework is intended to provide planning guidance to assist potential developers in interpreting relevant planning policy when drawing up development proposals. Once approved in its final form, it is intended that the Framework will be a material consideration in determining future planning applications on the Alderley Park site.

The Alderley Park Development Framework (Consultation Draft) has been approved as a draft document to be subjected to public consultation. Views on the document are sought from anyone interested in the future of the site.

The consultation period will run from 30 January 2015 to 13 March 2015.

Congleton Link Road: Pre-Planning Consultation

Cheshire East Council is proposing a new 3.5-mile road for Congleton, because the town experiences heavy congestion, particularly at peak times. This has hampered town centre regeneration, reduced inward investment and also made it difficult to retain existing business.  

As Congleton’s population grows, the problems will worsen. Now, we have a real opportunity to make a positive change for the town.  Before a planning application is submitted for the new road, the Council is keen to hear your views to ensure it delivers the best possible solution for the people of Congleton. 

You can respond to this consultation by completing this questionnaire:

or by attending one of the following consultation events in March:

  • Thursday 5th March 2015 (2pm – 7pm) Congleton Library
  • Friday 6th March 2015 (10am – 4pm) Congleton Library
  • Saturday 7th March 2015 (10am – 3pm) Congleton Leisure Centre.

All questionnaires should be completed and submitted by Tuesday 31/03/2015.

Environmental Hub: Pre-Planning Consultation

Cheshire East Council is proposing to submit a planning application to turn the former Ideal Standard site on Cledford Lane, Middlewich, into a multi-purpose depot.

It is proposed that the site becomes the new headquarters for Ansa Environmental Services, the Council’s operating company for recycling and streetscape services.  The depot would become Ansa’s home for street cleaning, grounds and parks maintenance, transport and fleet maintenance.  Draft proposals for the site can be found at exhibitions being held on Friday 13 March between 7pm-9pm and Saturday 14 March 9am-12 midday.
