Wilmslow Town Council is aware that many individual residents and resident groups in Wilmslow have strong views as to how their town should develop but believe that development should only proceed with significant resident support. A Neighbourhood Plan concluding with a referendum is one way of identifying the ideas that have majority support.

A Neighbourhood Plan is a significant undertaking both in terms of volunteer time and skills and also in terms of cost to the public purse.

This public meeting will give residents the opportunity to consider the arguments for and against, to ask questions of the panel assembled, to consider if they would have the skills, time and dedication to play a leading role in a process that could take up to 2 years to complete and to feed their thoughts to the Town Council.

Wilmslow Town Council currently retains an open mind on this matter and intend to use this public meeting to start to form a view as to whether it would be appropriate to initiate a Neighbourhood Plan for Wilmslow.
