Nantwich and the Local Plan

Nantwich has a population of approximately 15,000 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 draft Nantwich Town Strategy seeks to protect and enhance the Town's heritage, in particular maintaining the character of the town centre and supporting independent retailers.

The provision of suitable new employment land to attract new businesses and allow existing businesses to grow is seen as important as is providing a range of housing to meet current and future needs. The promotion of Nantwich Riverside as a community resource is a priority linked to the general aim to promote leisure and tourism opportunities associated with the River Weaver and the Shropshire Union Canal.

Favoured development options for the Nantwich include brownfield sites such as Snow Hill and Regents College and a greenfield site to the north west of the Town.


Nantwich is one of two key historic towns in Cheshire East and its heritage and distinctiveness need to be maintained and enhanced.

The draft NantwichTown Strategy recognises that growth is necessary to provide new infrastructure, new employment opportunities and to meet current and future housing needs, including high quality small homes and bungalows.

To ensure that the town can grow in the future, land at North West Nantwich is identified as a mixed use site in the Development Strategy, to provide employment land and about 1,000 houses. This site is sustainably located in close proximity to the town centre and provides opportunities to extend the Riverside Park. Consultation responses to the draft Strategy indicated that there was more support for this site than for the development of land at South Nantwich.

In addition, the former Stapeley Water Gardens site is identified to provide 2 hectares of employment land and 250 dwellings and the Snowhill area is identified for regeneration, to include retail, offices, leisure and about 50 dwellings. The identification of both of these sites reflects the support received during the consultation for the development of brownfield sites and the mixed use development of the former Stapeley Water Gardens site.

Two new areas of Green Belt are proposed to the east and west of the town. This reflects the responses to the draft Nantwich Town Strategy which supported retaining the open land between Crewe and Nantwich and ensuring that Nantwich retains its rural setting.

An employment improvement area has been identified at Wardle as having future potential for expansion and consolidation of existing and new employers, to provide employment opportunities.
