Hartford Neighbourhood Plan is 'made'
At the Cabinet Meeting held by Cheshire West and Chester Council on June 8th 2016 it was unanimously resolved to 'make' the neighbourhood plan.
Cheshire West and Chester Council will issue a formal 'decision statement' confirming the Council's decision to 'make' the plan, once the 5 day call in period has passed and the minutes of the meeting have been published.
The neighbourhood plan will then form part of the statutory development plan for the neighbourhood area and will be used in making decisions on planning applications.

FOLLOWING on from a successful community funding initiative in 2015 which saw Redrow support 11 local Hartford-based groups, the housebuilder is on the lookout for more local projects to support in the area.
Having previously provided more than £5,000 in financial support to local organisations in the first community funding initiative last year, Redrow is keen to extend the offer of help once again to groups in need of support in the surrounding area. More »
Jason Newton, sales director for Redrow Homes (NW), said: "We had a fantastic response the first time around and our funding benefitted 11 local groups, among them, Hartford Scouts who refurbished their scout hut, a new kit was provided to Hartford Football Club Girls under 9s and a sensory garden created at Greenbank School.
"We are looking forward to working with even more community groups, sports clubs and charities in Hartford, to find new ways to make a difference. With this in mind we'd like to invite the local community to suggest projects that they think we might be able to help with and we'll endeavour to provide assistance where we can."
Redrow wants to offer new support to as many local groups and organisation as possible and has set a £5,000 budget for the second round of community funding, in addition to substantial investment through its section 106 commitments with the local authority.
"Rather than give all the money to one organisation or project, we'd like to make a number of smaller grants to help as many people as possible," Jason said. "We're interested to hear what people need – and how it will make a difference."
