CEC Fails on 5 Year Housing Claim

Home » Newsroom » CEC Fails on 5 Year Housing Claim

Recently, Cheshire East Council has published its Local Plan Strategy — Submission Version and now, a Government Inspector has ruled that the authority has still failed to demonstrate that it has a five year supply of deliverable housing sites.

The comments were made in a report of an appeal about a prospective development in Sandbach. The Government Inspector said: "The area that now comprises the administrative area of Cheshire East has not met its housing targets since 2008/9. That is almost six years, during which time there has been persistent under delivery that now amounts to over 3,000 dwellings. About 40% of houses assumed to be delivered within five years do not have planning permission."

At this stage, we are not sure what this will mean for housing developments in Chelford but we will keep you informed as events unfold.
