Pre-submission Consultation

Woodford Neighbourhood Forum Management Committee have 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. Comments from the council were taken into account to produce a revised version which was sent to forum members for review prior to the next stage : Pre-submission Consultation (Regulation 14). Scroll down the page for links. Forum members have now approved a draft to proceed to Regulation 14 stage.

The revised draft Neighbourhood Plan can be viewed here. The information and evidence supporting our policies can be viewed in the following reports:
