●● AN appeal has been launched for volunteers to help shape the future of Poynton.
The Neighbourhood Plan group is looking for residents aged 20 to 45 to help formulate the Poynton Neighbourhood Plan.
They are holding group discussions on Thursday, May 5, from 7pm to 9pm, at the Community Centre on Park Lane, and Saturday May 14, from 10am to noon, at the British Legion on Georges Road West.
Views will be sought on issues such as housing, the Green Belt, health and wellbeing, infrastructure and local services, as well as the draft policy proposals intended to manage these.
The Neighbourhood Plan will influence the way in which Poynton develops from now until 2030.
It is distinct from Cheshire East Council’s emerging Local Plan, which will govern development in the whole of Cheshire East in the same time period.
Although the Neighbourhood Plan needs to comply with the Local Plan, it will have legal force.
