Planning policy updates and FAQs

Released on 18 September 2019

South Staffordshire council news

Our Strategic Planning team receives many site suggestions from individuals, planning agents and developers for land for inclusion in our Strategic Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA).

All suggested sites are added to our SHELAA so that we have a public record of available land. This provides an evidence base of potential sites to inform the Local Plan review but it does not make policy decisions on future housing or employment allocations.

Sometimes information can be taken out of context, especially in the local media, so to help clarify issues and respond to concerns we have published some FAQs which we hope you will find useful.
