The Plan has now been updated and completed, taking into account some of the comments received from the recent 6 week consultation. All relevant documents have now been published for a further 6 week consultation by Cheshire East to comply with Regulation 15. This consultation will end on March 8th. Final submission documents including the Plan, can be found on the Cheshire East website via the neighbourhood planning portal. Comments can be made via the consultation portal.
Documents can also be found on the Parish Council website- www.chelfordparishcouncil.org.uk
Use the Neighbourhood Plan link drop down menu (Regulation 15). Comments and responses to the previous 6 week consultation can be found in the Consultation Statement under Regulation 15. All other key documents can also be found in the other parts of the drop down menu.
Cheshire East will shortly arrange for an independent Inspector to examine the Plan and issue a report. Subject to the Plan meeting the appropriate criteria, Cheshire East will arrange a formal referendum and issue ballot papers to all residents.
The question that the referendum has to ask is: "Do you want Cheshire East Council to use the neighbourhood plan for Chelford to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?"
Anybody registered to vote in the area covered by the Neighbourhood Plan will be entitled to vote. A simple majority of votes (over 50% of those voting) in favour of the Neighbourhood Plan is sufficient for it to succeed.
We will keep you updated on this website and the Parish Council website
