WNF will now promote implementation of the policies in WNP.
WNF is as a consultee on planning applications in the Neighbourhood Area. It will comment on compliance of planning applications in the NA with the WNP policies. Stockport Council will make the decisions in the normal way.
WNF, working in harmony with the Woodford community Coucil (WCC), will also promote aspirations for the village, which arose during onsultation with residents during preparation of WNP that could not be the subject of planning policy. They have been reported in a supplementary document “Woodford Village Aspirations” and include: promoting walking, cycling and use of public transport; integration of old and new communities; and promoting clean air.
