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.
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
that the plan has passed the examination stage and we can now proceed to referendum. “It’s been a long time coming, but we’re now very close to having a plan in place that will meet the needs of this town now
and into the future. “I hope everyone will be able to get behind the plan and give it their support.”
