Our Neighbourhood Development Plan

These pages have been developed to update Church Minshull residents on the progress and activities around our Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP). There is a short explanation of what an NDP is, further down this page.

The Parish Council decided to develop a NDP for Church Minshull following the public interest and in response to some concern, over potential developer interest in building a comparatively large scale development on the north side of the village centre. A steering group is in place to take things forward and a well attended, initial open meeting was held in January 2016 to kick off the communications to the community.

An NDP will be complimentary to the 2014 Parish Plan and once in place, would have a binding legal status for all planning and development issues.

The NDP has now reached the final stages; an external assessment will be followed by a Village Referendum (paid for by Cheshire East) planned for October 2019. If you have any queries please contact the parish Council through our Clerk Mark Robinson via email on
