The residents of Alderley Edge, Eaton, Gawsworth, Hankelow, Peover Superior and Shavington-cum-Gresty have all voted to implement their respective neighbourhood plans.
The plans were put to referendum on 6th May, and all were approve when votes were counted at Macclesfield Leisure Centre today (9th May).
The declarations for each are provided below.
In Alderley Edge 1,163 residents voted ‘yes’ to the neighbourhood plan, helping inform planning applications in the village.
Over a third of the electorate turned out to vote in Alderley Edge, a high level for such a referendum, and almost 91% of those who voted were in favour of the plan.
Sarah Greenwood, co-chair of the steering group, said: “We are delighted that the residents of Alderley Edge have backed the plan once again.
“It will now be part of the statutory development plan, used in local planning decisions.”
She added: “The plan provides guidance for Cheshire East planners on what kind of houses the village wants and needs, it calls for more smaller houses for those who need to downsize but stay in the village, or for first time buyers – something residents told us they need.
“The plan also protects the separation between Alderley Edge and Wilmslow and provides design guidance to ensure that the village’s character is retained.
The plan can be viewed on the Cheshire East Council website.
