The Church Minshull Community Website

At November's Parish Council meeting concerns were raised regarding a potential outline planning application for land opposite Weaver View. For many at the meeting, this highlighted the urgent need for the creation of a Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP). See here for more information.
An NDP would be complimentary to the 2014 Parish Plan and once in place, would have a binding legal status for all planning and development issues.
The Parish Council is holding an open meeting on Tuesday 12th Jan to which all are invited at 7:30pm in the village hall.
The planned agenda is as follows
- Welcome and introductions The need for a Neighbourhood Development Plan
- Cheshire Community Action
What an NDP is and the process to develop and successfully achieve one.
- Andrew Thompson
An independent consultant who has worked with a number of parishes to develop their policies and plan.
- Questions, comments and hopefully some answers
- Our next steps...
Please come to the meeting if you can.
