Holmes Chapel Neighbourhood Plan
Holmes Chapel Neighbourhood Plan is "Made"
Following the Referendum on March 9th, Holmes Chapel voted decisively in favour of the Neighbourhood Plan, with 97% of voters saying YES to the Plan! 41.5% of registered voters turned out to vote at the 4 polling stations across the village, with a total of 1985 votes being cast, including postal votes.
Cheshire East Council formally "Made" our Neighbourhood Plan on April 18th 2017.
This means the Plan is now a statutory planning document and its policies have to be considered when assessing any new planning applications within the Village.
The Strategic Planning Task Group is currently reviewing our Neighbourhood Plan, with a view to possibly updating it. For information about this group and to access the minutes of their meetings please click here
