The Gawsworth Neighbourhood Plan has advanced to the next stage after being submitted to Cheshire East Council. The plan is now subject to a six-week consultation (Regulation 16 Consultation) where residents are able to submit their comments on the proposed plan directly to Cheshire East Council.
All comments received in this consultation will be considered by an independent Planning Examiner who will decide whether changes are required to the plan’s policies.
As the plan progresses, the weight it carries in planning decisions builds and already Cheshire East Council will begin noting the policies in the emerging plan when appraising applications.
The Gawsworth Neighbourhood Plan and all associated documents may be accessed, downloaded and viewed via the Neighbourhood Planning pages of Cheshire East Council’s website: Gawsworth Neighbourhood Plan webpage

Gawsworth Parish Council has lodged strong objections with Cheshire East Council on the proposed mast at Penningtons Lane. Writing to the planning officer, the Parish Council has said:
Gawsworth Parish Council has submitted objections to Cheshire East Council in respect of application 18/5544M – 10 houses on Dark Lane.
The planning application for 10 new homes on Dark Lane is now live under reference 18/5544M. The application was submitted by Engine of the North (part of Cheshire East Council) and proposes 8 affordable and two market houses. It includes a pedestrian crossing on the A536 and other highways improvements such as new footpaths.
