Poynton Relief Road planning application

The planning application for Poynton Relief Road was submitted to Cheshire East Council and Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council on 1 September 2016.

Following a 16 week determination period, the planning application was subsequently heard at the following planning committees:

  • Cheshire East Strategic Planning Board - 10 January 2017
  • Stockport Planning and Highways Regulation Committee - 12 January 2017

Both of these planning committees recommended approval of the Poynton Relief Road planning application.

Following this recommendation there was an ongoing exercise to reach a point where a set of planning conditions for each local authority were agreed upon. In parallel, Cheshire East Council and Stockport Council sought to enter into a Section 8 Agreement under the Highways Act 1980, to enable Cheshire East Council to assume the lead delivery role on the project.

Decision notices for the Poynton Relief Road planning application were formally issued on the following dates:

The planning applications can be viewed on the Cheshire East Council Planning Portal and Stockport Council Planning Portal.
