Alsager and the Local Plan
Alsager is situated in the Borough of Cheshire East, in the south-
Alsager has a population of approximately 12,500 and covers an area of more than 2,000 acres of the Cheshire Plain.
Cheshire East is characterised by its distinctive historic towns each with their own history, character and charm. These towns lie at the heart of the Borough, and their vitality and growth is essential for the future prosperity of Cheshire East. These towns serve as Key Service Centres for a wider locality with a good range of facilities including shops, schools and cultural and leisure facilities.
The Key Service Centres of Alsager, Congleton, Handforth, Knutsford, Middlewich, Nantwich, Poynton, Sandbach and Wilmslow provide a range of services and opportunities for employment, retail and education. They serve a wide catchment area and contain public transport links. The Key Service Centres offer opportunities for sustainable economic growth that can meet the aspirations of the Borough and local communities.
The Vision for the Key Service Centres is:
The towns Alsager, Congleton, Handforth, Knutsford, Middlewich, Nantwich, Poynton, Sandbach and Wilmslow will see growth, with high quality homes and business premises provided to meet local needs, where smaller independent traders will continue to thrive and where all development will contribute to creating a strong sense of place.
The Alsager Town Strategy seeks to ensure that Alsager continues to be a sustainable community by providing good quality housing to meet local needs, by providing the facilities to meet the health, education, sporting, social, cultural and leisure needs of Alsager its residents and by maintaining the community links with surrounding areas such as the Potteries.
The Strategy for Alsager identifies development opportunities on brownfield sites at Twyfords and the former Manchester Metropolitan University Campus. It also gives priority to the development of a Sports and Leisure Hub in the town. Access to open space locally is seen as very important. The Alsager Town Strategy aims for the Town Centre to remain the focus for retail development in the town but a more flexible approach to the type of uses allowed in the town centre is suggested in order to maintain and improve its vitality.
The vibrant town of Alsager will continue to flourish and grow in the future, with new employment
opportunities provided at Radway Green employment area, through the regeneration of about 10ha
of mainly brownfield land. This will be complemented by the development of around 1,100 new
dwellings by 2030. This level of sustainable growth in the town broadly reflects the aspirations of the
Alsager Town Strategy and the proximity of the town to the Potteries conurbation and the South
Cheshire Green Belt.
