After five years of research, consultation and a lot of hard work, the Northwich Neighbourhood Plan has cleared its last hurdle and is ready to be put to the people of Northwich in a referendum held on 21st June. The results were a resounding 88.8% of voters saying ‘yes’ to accepting the Plan.
The last stage of the plan process was the examination. Giving the plan his seal of approval in March, Independent Examiner Robert Yuille wrote, “From reading the supporting evidence it is clear that much
hard work over a long period has gone into the preparation of the Plan. “From the outset, the authors of the Plan have shown a clear grasp of what such a Plan can achieve and they have produced a thorough, compendious and professionally presented document which addresses the planning issues of
importance to the local community.”
Commenting on the examiner’s decision, Cllr Andrew Cooper said, “We’re delighted it has been a long time coming, but we now have a plan in place that will meet the needs of this town now and into the future.
