Preferred Options Public Engagement

There are many ways you can find out about the Preferred Options before making your comments as part of the consultation, but remember that you must let us know your views in writing for us to take them into account.

Locality Online Q&A Sessions


Our Locality 5 online Q&A session was very well attended and many questions were not able to be answered on the night. You can read those outstanding Q&As here: Locality 5 Q&A Session Follow Up Questions

If you want to discuss the Preferred Options we can arrange one-to-one Virtual Appointments (Microsoft Teams) please call 01902 696000 to arrange with a Member of the Strategic Planning Team.

You can also call and ask to speak to a member of the Team on 01902 696000 between 9am and 5pm Monday - Friday

Our sessions have been set up on a locality basis, but anyone can attend any session, they are not restricted to residents of the district and we welcome views from people who live outside South Staffordshire. Localities Map
