Brownfield land can be re-used
Cheshire East Council has approved a new planning power for two main areas in Macclesfield that will see brownfield sites become residential and commercial areas.
The local development order, which was agreed at a meeting of the Cabinet on 5th February, covers the areas known as North Side and Whalley Hayes.
The decision to accept it means the order will effectively grant planning consent for a combination of residential and commercial development, provided it meets the terms of the order.
The order promotes additional housing close by the town centre and the re-use of brownfield land and follows an extensive period of preparation and engagement.
