The Ollerton with Marthall Neighbourhood Plan

A neighbourhood plan is a document that sets out planning policies for the neighbourhood area, which is used by the local planning authority (Cheshire East) to decide whether or not to approve planning applications. The neighbourhood plan will be used in conjunction with national and local planning policies and is intended to address issues specific to our community. Importantly, the plan is written by the local community - the people who know and love the area, rather than the local planning authority and is a powerful tool to ensure we get the right types of development, in the right place. The plan will allow us to develop planning policies that reflect the priorities of this area and that have real legal weight. Once the plan has been written, the whole community will decide at a referendum vote whether the local authority should bring the plan into force.

Ollerton with Marthall Parish Council is currently in the process of developing the nieghbourhood plan and has sumbitted a questionnaire to residents in order to seek their input into the future of the villages. When the responses have been compiled, a pubic meeting will be called to start developing the policies in the plan.
