Who are we?

Sandymoor is a civil parish in the borough of Halton, Cheshire, England. The parish lies in the eastern part of the town of Runcorn.

The Parish Council was formed to give all residents of Sandymoor a forum whereby they could have an input into the future development of the village and also raise any local issues or concerns.

Recent Parish Council meetings have seen many topics and issues discussed, and we hope that the level of attendance and community engagement will continue in 2017.

 

Financial assistance/funding

Town Planning - Public Consultation on Local Plan – 4 January to 15 Feb 2018

This video explains the process: https://vimeo.com/cdandpmedia/review/246314629/1e8bb9953c

The last Local Plan, the Halton Unitary Development Plan (UDP), was adopted in 2005. A Local Plan is a legally required plan that sets out how the Borough will look in 20 years’ time and is used to guide all town planning decisions made by the Council.

Over the last 12 years the UDP has been delivered, and the majority of the construction sites identified in the UDP have now become new housing, employment, retail & leisure. It is therefore time to prepare and adopt a new Local Plan to meet the Borough’s future needs.

The plan replacing the UDP will be called the “Delivery and Allocations Local Plan” (DALP). This plan contains the policies that guide development and a proposals map that shows different land uses across the Borough.

The first major step in preparing a new plan is to undertake a public consultation to seek the views of all interested parties on the draft policies and proposals map.

Suggested advice for constituents:

If residents contact you for information about the DALP, the key messages are as follows:

Once the Jan – Feb 2018 consultation is complete, all comments will be reviewed. A revised draft plan will then be prepared, and a second public consultation will happen in the second half of 2018. Following that second consultation, the draft plan is submitted to the Government for approval.
