Thank you to everyone who took the trouble to respond to the Regulation14 Consultation. Woodford Neighbourhood Forum have now evaluated all your responses and submitted the Woodford Neighbourhood Plan to Stockport Council. Stockport Council’s consultation on the Woodford Neighbourhood Plan is now open until 5pm on the 7th December 2018. You can have your say here: https://consultation.stockport.gov.uk/planning/woodford-neighbourhood-draft-plan/
Background: Woodford Neighbourhood Forum Management Committee developed a vision, objectives and draft policies for the Neighbourhood Plan based on analysis of evidence gathered from a residents’ questionnaire, a business survey, landscape and environment studies and a number of studies conducted on our behalf by professional consultants, including a Scoping Report by Kirkwells Ltd, a Housing Needs Assessment by AECOM, a Movement Study by Peter Brett Associates a Heritage and Character Assessment by AECOM, and a report by Cheshire Wildlife Trust. A draft Neighbourhood Plan document with all the necessary supporting evidence was prepared and submitted to the local council officers for comments. Following receipt of helpful comments from the council, the draft Neighbourhood Plan document was circulated to Forum members for approval prior to Pre-submission Consultation (Regulation 14). The Forum ran a consultation on the draft Woodford Neighbourhood Plan from 16 May to 30 June 2018. Thank you to everyone who responded. All the comments received were reviewed, the draft was amended as deemed appropriate and submitted to the Council at the end of September 2018.
