High Lane Village Neighbourhood Development Plan

Closed 14 Mar 2021

Opened 27 Jan 2021


Neighbourhood planning was introduced with the Localism Act 2011. Since then communities across the country have taken up the opportunity to prepare Neighbourhood Plans. These plans enable communities to put in place a vision and policies for future local Development.

High Lane Village Neighbourhood Forum will be the second body within the Borough of Stockport to submit a proposed plan on behalf of a Community.

Written by the High Lane Village Neighbourhood Forum, this document seeks public views on development policies that the group have proposed for their local area.
