Local Plan Consultations

Engagement with our communities and stakeholders has always been a very important part of the planning process in South Staffordshire.

Preferred Options Consultation now Summer 2021

Following discussions with our Elected Members, we now have a new timetable for our Local Plan review. This means that consultation on the next stage of the review, Preferred Options, has been moved to Summer 2021.

Consultation is a very important part of the Local Plan review process, and we will use this extra time to review new and updated evidence, and to fully consider the representations made. The Preferred Options stage will include new sites for development and new and revised planning policies. You can see the full timetable in our Local Development Scheme.

It is very important that we continue to work on the review, so that at the right time, we will be able to provide a strong planning framework for the future of South Staffordshire which will provide much needed homes and jobs, and which will help revitalise the economy.

If you have made comments to us previously, you do not need to contact us as we will be in touch automatically to let you know when the next consultation is planned. If not, and you would like to be added to our database, please email localplanreview@sstaffs.gov.uk

Data Protection

The Strategic Planning Team manages and maintains a register of persons who have an interest in local planning documents (Local Plan Database); those who wish to register land for future development on our Self and Custom Build Register and/or Strategic Housing and Employment Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA); and regarding Empty Properties. In order to do this in an effective way we will need to collect and use personal information about you.
