Cheshire East Council is to move forward on the next phase of Cheshire East's development plan.
The site allocations and development policies document (SADPD), which forms the second part of the council's Local Plan, was considered by members of the authority's cabinet recently.
Members agreed to move towards the next round of public consultation on the draft document which, once finalised, will provide the approved framework for housing, employment, and other key infrastructure sites up to 2030.

This is an important document as it sets out those locations where small allocations are proposed in the greenbelt. CEC say that this is necessary to meet localised needs in those villages and to ensure no further greenbelt changes are made until at least the 2040s.
