Rural Cheshire East

The rural aspect of Cheshire East is important in terms of population, economic impact and its contribution to the borough’s Quality of Place. It helps to define the character of the place. The quality of its natural environment and excellent location, combined with factors such as high educational attainment and employment opportunities, ensure that Cheshire East is a place offering a high quality of life to its residents and is an attractive place to do business; a place where people want to live, work and visit.

As part of delivering its Corporate Plan outcomes, the Council has undertaken to build a strong and resilient rural economy with strong, supportive rural places and communities. The Rural Action Plan builds upon previous work by the Council to support its Rural area, identifying actions for the three year period 2019/20 -2021/22. It is intended that this plan will provide a framework that supports consideration of policy and strategic direction for the rural area, positioning the Council to be able to respond to changes at national and local level.
