More Homes in East Cheshire

More homes is a feature of Cheshire East Council’s revised local plan strategy, due to be approved by the full council later this month before a further round of public consultation is carried out. This will include additional and amended strategic site allocations.

The strategy revisions reflect a revised housing requirement of 36,000 homes (up from 29,000) and an increased employment land requirement, up from 300-hectares to 380-hectares, to reflect the stronger anticipated jobs growth rate of 0.7 per cent per.
