Middlewich and the Local Plan

Middlewich has a population of approximately 14,000 and is situated in the Borough of  Cheshire East.

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 aspiration in the final Middlewich Town Strategy is to create a sustainable, vibrant and prosperous town.

This will be achieved by growth, which will allow the town to achieve a critical mass, sufficient to support and require the provision of new housing;

enhancement of Middlewich town centre, new and more skilled jobs and employment

opportunities, protection and development of the built and natural environment, and improved road and rail infrastructure. Additional employment land is suggested to the east of the Midpoint 18 site.

The preferred locations for housing development are brownfield sites within the town, to the north east of the town around Kinderton Hall and to the south of the town around Warmingham Lane - provided sufficient infrastructure is provided to support the development.


The Middlewich Town Strategy states that by 2030, the town will be a sustainable, vibrant and prosperous place. The level of development proposed for Middlewich is consistent with the final Middlewich Town Strategy which seeks to enable the growth of the town, ensure the delivery of improvements to the town centre and to achieve the provision of a wider range of community facilities in the town.

Additional employment land is proposed at Midpoint 18 to generate jobs around the M6 Motorway corridor including the potential development of a Cheshire Enterprise Hub.

Provision of housing in Middlewich will occur on Brooks Lane and Glebe Farm. Through these developments, contributions will be sought towards the completion of the Middlewich Eastern Bypass.

The Middlewich Town Strategy also identified further land that would be suitable for residential development to the north east of the town. The majority of this land lies, however, in Cheshire West and Chester Borough and cannot therefore be included in the Cheshire East Local Plan. Cheshire West and Chester will be requested to include this land as a development allocation in its Local Plan.
