NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN

Creating Our Future Village

Neighbourhood planning provides a powerful set of tools for local people to ensure that they get the right types of development for their community where the ambition of the neighbourhood is aligned with the strategic needs and priorities of the wider local area. Local communities can choose to: 

  • set planning policies through a neighbourhood plan that is used in determining planning applications.

  • grant planning permission through Neighbourhood Development Orders and Community Right to Build Orders for specific development which complies with the order.


Neighbourhood planning is not a legal requirement but a right which communities in England can choose to use. Our unique village and its superb historic landscape setting is under threat from a number of directions. Some of these we can do little about with a Neighbourhood Plan (HS2 for example), but for others (such as the Redrow development) we can try to ensure that it is preserved and conserved as much as possible.


In the autumn of 2018, Warburton Parish Council decided to seek permission from Trafford Council to produce a Neighbourhood Plan.   The process has been slightly delayed by the pandemic but is now moving forward again.

The Parish Council have previously produced a Village Design Statement (2004) and this will feed into the new Neighbourhood Plan. The Warburton Neighbourhood Plan gives us villagers the opportunity to determine what is appropriate development and what should be protected from development for ourselves. It is a superb opportunity and one we really should not miss. Warburton Parish Council has now developed ideas for the future of Warburton village that will provide the framework for a Neighbourhood Development Plan.  We now need your input to that plan.  This is your chance to have your say as we move through the required public consultation phases.
