Birds Nest Planning Application Rejected.

Audlem Parish Council is delighted to report that the application for 20 houses at Bird's Nest, Audlem Road, has been refused by Cheshire East Council. Cheshire East's Planning Officer recommended refusal on the grounds that the proposed development is 'outside of the settlement boundary for Audlem as defined in the Audlem Neighbourhood Plan (ANP) 2016'.

Neighbourhood Plan — Public Referendum on March 24th, 2016

On February 5th, Cheshire East's Cabinet Member for Housing and Planning signed a Decision that the Audlem Neighbourhood Plan (ANP) should go to formal referendum so that Audlem residents can vote on the plan.

This is the final stage of a journey that commenced at the Audlem Parish Council Extraordinary Meeting held on Thursday 10 July 2014, at which there was almost unanimous public support for developing a Neighbourhood Plan.

The date for the referendum has been provisionally set for Thursday March 24th and will be held in the Public Hall.
Residents will be asked a set question:  "Do you want Cheshire East Borough Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Audlem to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?", to which they are required to give a simple 'Yes' or 'No' answer. 

It is vitally important that residents turn out and show their support for the ANP — if over 50% of those who vote agree, then the Plan will then be recommended for formal acceptance by Cheshire East Council when it finally becomes a legally recognised Statutory Planning Document that should provide Audlem's residents a more robust platform with which to resist inappropriate housing developments.

Brine Leas Survey Results

Recently Audlem pupils at Brine Leas were asked their opinions and views about living in our village. As part of the development of Audlem's Neighbourhood Plan, it is important to consider the views of the next generation of home owner/occupiers, so they were asked about their likes and dislikes about living here, as well as what additional facilities and types of housing they would like to see.

The answers are both interesting and also very reassuring. They demonstrate that our younger people have a lot more maturity and selflessness than we sometimes give them credit for.
