CEC consultation on Brooks Lane Development

Following the adoption of the Local Plan Strategy, the Council has been preparing a number of additional planning policy documents to provide further guidance. The Brooks Lane (Middlewich) draft Development Framework (Masterplan) Supplementary Planning Document (“SPD”) has been prepared to provide further guidance about a site allocated for redevelopment in the Local Plan Strategy – Brooks Lane (Middlewich) strategic location (LPS 43). The draft development framework has been prepared by consultants, Barton Willmore, on behalf of the council. The council is now seeking views on the document prior to it being finalised and adopted as a SPD, As a SPD, its guidance would need to be taken into account in deciding relevant planning applications affecting the site.
