The Town Council commenced work on developing a Neighbourhood Development Plan in 2014, following the power to do so being introduced by the Localism Act 2011. The Neighbourhood Plan is a land use planning document that sits alongside the Cheshire East Local Plan to guide development in Knutsford through to 2030. It has been prepared by a committee of councillors and volunteer residents, supported by over 100 volunteers in numerous working groups. The plan was consulted on throughout its development and is currently at the stage of being examined by an independent examiner.
