   Neighbourhood Plan Consultation     July 7, 2017

The Wilmslow Neighbourhood Plan has started a consultation on its Emerging Policies.

Following its Initial Questionnaire last year the group have been working to interpret the information that it gleaned from the 1200 responses and to determine the areas in which the Neighbourhood Plan could legitimately address.

The Emerging Policies Document which can now be found on the Wilmslow Neighbourhood Plan website  


sets out a Vision and set of Objectives for the Neighbourhood Plan and then specifies the more detailed topics where Planning Policy could be used to address issues raised.

The purpose of the consultation is to determine whether the group has identified the planning priorities highlighted by the public via the Initial Questionnaire and to clarify if each of the proposed Vision, Objectives and Suggested Policy Areas are broadly in line with public opinion.

Whilst the public are encouraged to visit the website and to complete the survey the group will be holding a number of open drop–in events over the next couple of months to encourage residents and businesses to talk to members of the group, to examine the Emerging Policies Document in greater detail and to indicate their support or opposition to the individual elements.

The first two drop in events are confirmed as

The Wilmslow Show, Neighbourhood Plan Stall – Sunday 9 July anytime between 11am and 5pm

United Reformed Church, Meeting Rooms – Tuesday 11 July anytime between 7pm and 9pm


Brian Donohue, Chairman of the Wilmslow Neighbourhood Plan Group said

“The Neighbourhood Plan will be  a vital tool in helping to shape Wilmslow into the place that residents want it to be over the next 15-20 years. We were delighted by how many people responded to our Initial Questionnaire and it is equally important that the public now let us know if we are on the right track, we very much hope that people will come along to our informal drop-in events or to visit our website”
