Additional Planning Policies and Guidance

Planning policy is set out in the Local Plansaved policies and completed Neighbourhood Plans.

There are also a number of policy and guidance documents that set out the council's intentions with regard to specific topics and sites/areas. Although these guidance documents are not part of the statutory development plan for Cheshire East, they may still be a material consideration when making planning decisions.
