“Good afternoon,

Cheshire East planning policy document consultation

You have received this email as you have previously responded to a local plan consultation or you have asked to be kept informed of future local plan consultations. Cheshire East Council has published a planning policy document for consultation:

Draft Jodrell Bank Observatory Supplementary Planning Document (JBO SPD)

Jodrell Bank is a World Heritage Site and a working observatory, at the cutting edge of astrophysics research. In the area around Jodrell Bank there is a need to ensure that new development does not harm the unique heritage of the site or interfere with the telescopes and prevent the observatory from carrying out its work. The draft JBO SPD provides further guidance on how applicants should consider the impact of their proposals on Jodrell Bank and how they can demonstrate they have met the criteria of local plan policies. This is the first stage of consultation on the SPD which, once adopted, will be a material consideration in decision-taking.

The consultation will run from 12pm on Wednesday the 1st December 2021 to 8pm on Wednesday the 12thJanuary 2022. Further information is available on the council’s JBO SPD consultation webpage below:
