Res­i­dents urged to have say on vil­lage plan for next 20 years

Macclesfield Express - - MOTORING -

RES­I­DENTS are be­ing urged to help share Poyn­ton’s fu­ture for the next 20 years.

Poyn­ton’s Neigh­bour­hood Plan will set out de­vel­op­ment and fa­cil­i­ties in the vil­lage.

Once agreed, it will pro­vide a legally bind­ing doc­u­ment which will guide the scale and na­ture of de­vel­op­ment in Poyn­ton for years to come.

Work on the plan is be­ing led by Poyn­ton Town Coun­cil, sup­ported by a team of vol­un­teers.

A launch event at the Civic Hall was vis­ited by 100 res­i­dents, coun­cil­lors, vol­un­teers and MP David Rutley.

He said: “It was good to see so many res­i­dents take the trou­ble to at­tend this Neigh­bour­hood Plan launch, and I would like to thank the vol­un­teer team for mak­ing it pos­si­ble.

“The Plan is vi­tally im­por­tant for the fu­ture shape of the vil­lage, and I would en­cour­age res­i­dents in Poyn­ton to take the op­por­tu­nity to get in­volved and have their say by com­plet­ing a Neigh­bour­hood Plan survey. This will be avail­able at the end of Jan­uary.”

Neigh­bour­hood Plan project co-or­di­na­tor Sarah-Jane Gil­more said: “We were re­ally im­pressed by the high turnout and the level of in­ter­est and en­thu­si­asm.”

There will be a se­ries of drop-in ses­sions at the Civic Hall to view the plans on Fe­bru­ary 7, 14 and 21, be­tween 10am and 12pm.

You can com­plete the Neigh­bour­hood Plan survey on­line at www. poyn­tonnp.org.uk, or re­turn com­pleted pa­per copies to the Civic Hall by Fe­bru­ary 27.

Spare copies can be ob­tained from there and the li­brary. To find out more about the Poyn­ton Neigh­bour­hood Plan, visit the web­site or con­tact Town Clerk, Mal­colm Adams, on 01625 872238.
