The Poynton Neighbourhood Plan is a statutory planning document which forms part of the ‘development plan’ for Poynton which also includes the Cheshire East Council Local Plan. Cheshire East Council must use the Neighbourhood Plan policies when making decisions on planning applications in Poynton. The Neighbourhood Plan was developed by a Steering Group of councillors and volunteer residents. It was subject to extensive consultation between 2014 and 2019 and was finally approved at a referendum in October 2019.
