What happens if we don’t have a Neighbourhood Plan?
We know national guidance is for more homes, and Warrington will be following this. Warrington are currently in the process of revising their planned housing & development plans but in the interim it is really important we create a statement that reflects the views of Lymm residents, businesses and services.
Without a Lymm Neighbourhood Plan, future development won’t take Lymm’s need into consideration, as the planning policy will be set at the Warrington level, and national guidance.
Lymm is a premium spot as far as developers see it, so it is really important that residents and local businesses have their say and exert some influence over how development land in Lymm is used. It will need to consider not just housing, but the infrastructure that supports it.
A Neighbourhood Plan is not just for the short term, but should set a framework for future development that is suggested for the next 15-20 years.
We really need to engage with and receive input from as many people as possible – the more the better, all views are welcome.
Please encourage as many people to come, as by understanding the process we as a community will be more empowered.
