Local Development Framework Arrows LogoAlsager Town Strategy

The Alsager Town Strategy looks at how the town might develop in the future.  It indicates where new employment, housing and other uses may be located, along with how new infrastructure might be prioritised.

An Advisory Stakeholder Panel, drawn from the Town Council, community partnerships, local businesses and community groups worked hard to put together their ideas on how they want to see Alsager grow and develop over the next 20 years.

Consultation on the draft Alsager Town Strategy took place between 2nd March and 2nd April 2012.  All comments received were considered and the document revised accordingly.  This revised document was approved at a meeting of Alsager Town Council on 31st July 2012.

The Alsager Town Strategy now forms part of the Cheshire East Local Plan evidence base and will inform the development of the new Local Plan.  It may also be a material consideration in the determination of planning applications.

The results of the Sustainability Appraisal informed the production and revision of the Town Strategy and will inform the wider Sustainability Appraisal of the Local Plan.

Alsager Town Strategy Sustainability Appraisal – Comments
IDConsultation PointType of CommentSummaryResponse by Cheshire East Council
SAALS2 Paragraph 1.6 Comment What is a Sustainability Appraisal? What benefit will it be to ratepayers? Noted. The Sustainability Appraisal is a legislative requirement. The introduction provides an explanation of the process. No change required.
SAALS1 Paragraph 1.3 Support The only development areas which I fully support are areas A, B, and D because they are mostly brownfield sites with adequate transport connections and other facilities. I would also have some support for area H for employment development because it is adjacent to BAE at Radway Green, is on Crewe Road and next to the railway. These areas would deliver all of the requirement for housing and employment for the town for the next 20 years. Noted. No change required.
