Neighbourhood Planning

Neighbourhood planning provides a powerful set of tools for local people to plan for the types of development to meet their community’s needs and where the ambition of the neighbourhood is aligned with the strategic needs and priorities of the wider local area.

The 'In this section' menu to the right hand side of this page offers you some more of our neighbourhood planning related pages, such as:

  • The neighbourhood planning toolkit page, which includes templates, guidance and key resources.

  • The neighbourhood planning support page, request support to help prepare your plan and submit neighbourhood planning documents to the Council.

  • A list of individual pages for our currently active neighbourhood development plans.

At the bottom of this page you will find a link to: our neighbourhood planning consultation portal, our neighbourhood planning referendums page, neighbourhood planning guidance and keeping up to date with the strategic planning team at Cheshire East Council.
