Poynton and the Local Plan

Poynton has a population of approximately 13,000 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 Poynton Town Strategy seeks to retain the village feel and distinct rural setting of the community, with the preservation and enhancement of the historic and natural environment and the Green Belt as a priority.

There should be a sequential approach to new development in Poynton with greenfield sites only being considered when all brownfield opportunities have been utilised. Some of the local housing need may be met by the proposed Woodford Garden Village adjacent to the Parish but in Stockport Borough.

If more housing and employment sites are shown to be required, a number of additional potential development sites are identified on land currently within the Green Belt around Poynton, although the preference is for no development on the eastern side of Poynton.

Poynton is surrounded by Green Belt and adjacent to the former Woodford Aerodrome site (predominantly within Stockport Borough) which is proposed for residential development and supporting community facilities.

Due to these factors, Poynton is expected to accommodate a limited number of new homes (200) and employment land (5 hectares). There are very few brownfield sites within the town to accommodate even this limited level of development and, whilst there a no strategic sites for

Poynton identified in this document, it is most likely that small sites for development which are currently in the Green Belt will need to be identified in the Site Allocations document.

The Poynton Bypass has been identified as a key piece of infrastructure in the Development Strategy. This is designed to improve links and connectivity to Greater Manchester which is considered as vital to support the strategy for sustainable development of the Borough and to ensure future economic prosperity.
