What is the Frodsham Neighbourhood Plan?

The Neighbourhood Plan gives the local community the opportunity to decide what happens in terms of future development in Frodsham.

The Neighbourhood Plan can set criteria for what areas in Frodsham are developed and what areas are preserved over the next 20 years. The Plan can specify the location, type, density and look of any new development. When the Plan is in force, it is a legal planning document and must be considered when a planning application is made.

Neighbourhood Plans are a national initiative. All Neighbourhood Plans focus on future local land use; they cannot change anything that is set in national policy such as fracking, windfarms or highways.

A website is being developed: the address is www.frodshamplan.org.uk. It will be regularly updated. Have a look at the website and complete the short survey.
