Standish Neighbourhood Plan

Standish Voice (external link) is a community group who are preparing a neighbourhood plan for Standish.

Neighbourhood Plan agreed at Referendum

Following a Neighbourhood Referendum on 18th July 2019, the Standish Neighbourhood Plan has now become part of the development plan for the borough. This means that all planning applications within the Standish Neighbourhood Area now need to accord with the plan, subject to other material considerations.

The Neighbourhood Plan and the associated policies map can be viewed below:

A hard copy of the Neighbourhood Plan, the Policies Map and the Examiner's Report can be viewed at Standish Library.
