Macclesfield Borough Local Plan

Macclesfield Town HallThe Macclesfield Borough Local Plan was adopted as an altered plan on 8 January 2004 and covers the period to 2011.

A number of policies from the Local Plan were saved under the Secretary of State's Direction in 2007. Some of these saved policies have now been replaced by policies in the Local Plan Strategy (adopted 27 July 2017); a list of these is available to download below.

An interactive on-line version of the adopted Local Plan is available which enables the user to view any area by address and to find information about the policies/proposals simply by clicking on your chosen site. It contains the adopted version of the Proposals Map, which needs to be looked at in conjunction with the Written Statement found in the Macclesfield Borough Local Plan below.

A hard copy of the Macclesfield Borough Local Plan can be purchased from the Council at a cost of £100, including postage and packing. Please see the list of documents for purchase for further details.

The saved policies in the Macclesfield Local Plan apply only to the area previously covered by Macclesfield Borough (excluding the part falling within the Peak District National Park). Saved policies in other areas can be found in the Congleton Borough Local Plan First Review and the Borough of Crewe and Nantwich Replacement Local Plan. The Peak District National Park Authority deals with planning issues in the part of Cheshire East that lies within the National Park.
