Knutsford Neighbourhood Plan

Knutsford Neighbourhood Plan

The Knutsford Neighbourhood Plan is a statutory planning document which forms part of the ‘development plan’ for Knutsford which also includes the Cheshire East Council Local Plan. Cheshire East Council must use the Neighbourhood Plan policies when making decisions on planning applications in Knutsford.

The Neighbourhood Plan was developed by  a committee of councillors and volunteer residents, supported by over 100 volunteers in numerous working groups. It was subject to extensive consultation between 2016 and 2018 and was finally approved at a referendum in March 2019. The Town Council was supported by Urban Imprint, planning consultants from Macclesfield, to provide technical and professional expertise.

Printed copies of the approved plan are available to purchase for £15. A reference copy is available in Knutsford Library.
