Event on changes to homes plan

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

COM­MU­NITY groups will at­tend a con­sul­ta­tion on the latest ver­sion of the coun­cil’s Lo­cal Plan.

Cheshire East has been draw­ing up the plan which guides what can be built in Mac­cles­field and the bor­ough un­til 2030. The plan­ning in­spec­tor in charge of ex­am­in­ing it iden­ti­fied ‘se­ri­ous fail­ings’ and told the coun­cil it needed to in­crease the num­ber of homes. This could mean another 750 homes for Mac­cles­field.

Cab­i­net has ap­proved the changes which have now been sub­mit­ted to the in­spec­tor.

The coun­cil is hold­ing a meet­ing on the changes for in­vited parish coun­cils and com­mu­nity groups on Mon­day, Au­gust 3 at Mac­cles­field Town Hall. There have been com­plaints the con­sul­ta­tion is hap­pen­ing too late af­ter the plan has been re­sub­mit­ted.

Coun Rachel Bai­ley, Cab­i­net mem­ber in charge of the Lo­cal Plan, said: “The event is to pro­vide an over­view of the sug­gested re­vi­sions while gain­ing feed­back. If the re­vi­sions ad­dress the in­spec­tor’s con­cerns, any for­mal pro­pos­als to mod­ify the plan will be sub­ject of more for­mal con­sul­ta­tion.”
