Basford site allocations

The Basford East and Basford West sites were subsequently allocated as development sites in the Cheshire East Local Plan Strategy, for a mix of uses including employment uses, new homes, retail, community facilities and a new primary school. Whilst the development briefs above have not been formally revoked, they are no longer in line with the adopted Local Plan policy and the weight to be given to them in planning decision making is reduced accordingly.
