Your Say in the Future of Handforth


Do you want to have a say on the future of Handforth over the next 15 years?

If the answer is yes, you have the ideal opportunity through the Handforth Neighbourhood Plan. The Plan will set out the vision for Handforth; and once approved it will be a statutory document which can influence planning decisions over the next 15 years.

The Plan is being driven by a steering group of volunteers, all of whom are Handforth residents. They will spend 2017-2018 consulting with all Handforth residents, businesses, community groups and other stakeholders about the content of the plan. Following the consultations, the Steering Group will draft a detailed planning document – the Neighbourhood Plan. At this stage all Handforth residents who are over 18 will have the opportunity to vote in a referendum, enabling them to either accept or reject the Plan. 

This process is key to planning the future growth and prosperity of Handforth. We would therefore urge you to have your say.
