Macclesfield Borough Local Plan

Macclesfield Town HallThe Macclesfield Borough Local Plan was adopted as an altered plan on 8 January 2004 and covers the period to 2011.

A number of policies from the Local Plan were saved under the Secretary of State's Direction in 2007. Some of these saved policies have now been replaced by policies in the Local Plan Strategy (adopted 27 July 2017); a list of these is available to download below and all policies that are not saved are shown with strikethrough text in the plan.

An interactive adopted policies map is also available which shows the spatial policies of the LPS  alongside the saved policies from the Congleton Local Plan, Crewe and Nantwich Local Plan, Macclesfield Local Plan, Cheshire Waste Plan and Cheshire Minerals Plan.

The saved policies in the Macclesfield Local Plan apply only to the area previously covered by Macclesfield Borough (excluding the part falling within the Peak District National Park). Saved policies in other areas can be found in the Congleton Borough Local Plan First Review and the Borough of Crewe and Nantwich Replacement Local Plan. The Peak District National Park Authority deals with planning issues in the part of Cheshire East that lies within the National Park.
