What is a Neighbourhood Plan?

It is a plan which shapes the future development of your town. Thanks to ideas from local people, businesses and organisations we have a draft plan which covers 4 areas.


Where, what, and how future developments should look. We want to make sure that housing suits those who need it and blends with our beautiful, historic town.

Economic Development

We want Frodsham’s businesses to thrive, locals to enjoy their shopping experience and visitors to spend time here.

Green Spaces, Recreation & Leisure:

Let’s make sure that our green spaces stay green and we can all enjoy a variety of activities as part of a happy, healthy lifestyle.

Easy movement & Access:

Improving cycling and walking routes will help us to reduce the amount we use cars around Frodsham.
UpdateThe statutory 6-week consultation on the draft Frodsham Neighbourhood Plan is now closed. Thank you to all those who gave feedback online, via email or came to see us at one of our events. We have produced an update which you can view here.

What happens next?

All your feedback is being reviewed and considered, and the draft Plan will be updated.

The updated Neighbourhood Plan will then be sent to the Local Planning Authority at Cheshire West and Chester Council, who will then arrange publicity and an external examination of the Plan.

Once the Plan has been examined, Cheshire West and Chester Council will arrange a local referendum giving you a chance to vote yes or no to the Plan.

If the vote is positive, the Frodsham Neighbourhood Plan is then “made” and becomes part of planning law.
