Local Plan Review

Spatial Housing Strategy & Infrastructure Delivery - Consultation now closed.

We have consulted on the second stage of our Local Plan which was focused on broad locations for housing growth and the infrastructure required to deliver the growth. The consultation was not site specific, but looked at seven different options to deliver housing to meet South Staffordshire's own housing needs and a contribution towards unmet housing need in the wider region.

It did not cover employment growth or the needs of the Gypsy and Traveller community. These issues will be consulted on in at Preferred Options, scheduled for summer 2020.

We also consulted on an update to our Affordable Housing and Housing Mix Supplementary Planning Document (SPD). We have a strong track record of delivering affordable homes and the SPD set out the Council's expectations in relation to the provision of housing in the district. This provides clarity for landowners, developers, registered providers and residents and will ensure a consistent approach is taken between sites across the district.

Following the consultation, the Local Plans Team is now reading through and recording all the responses. They will be published on line in the New Year.
