Alsager Neighbourhood Area Modification

Decision maker: Portfolio Holder for Housing, Planning and Regeneration

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


A new neighbourhood area application has been received from Alsager Town Council. The application seeks to expand the existing neighbourhood area to include an area of land within the parish of Barthomley. The area of land concerned is the subject of a series of strategic allocations (or part of) in the Cheshire East Local Plan Strategy (LPS 23 Radway Green Brownfield, LPS24 Radway Green Extension Site and LPS25 Radway Green North).


The extension of the neighbourhood area here would allow the Alsager Neighbourhood Plan to apply across the full extent of future planned growth adjoining Alsager and enhance the ability of the Alsager Neighbourhood Plan to shape sustainable development in this location.


That the designation of the Alsager Neighbourhood Area be approved.

Reasons for the decision:

The existing parish boundary for Alsager no longer reflects the extent of planned growth set out in the Local Plan Strategy.


Enabling Alsager Town Council to develop neighbourhood planning policies to apply across the full extent of the built settlement, both now and in the future, will help shape sustainable development in this location.


The adjoining parish concerned, Barthomley Parish Council, is in agreement that the proposal would be positive and raises no objection.
