Neighbourhood Plans

What is a Neighbourhood Plan?

A Neighbourhood Plan is a way of helping local communities to influence the planning of the area in which they live and work. In South Staffordshire, Neighbourhood plans can be made by parish councils, who are known as designated bodies.

Plans are led and written by the community, not the district council. Neighbourhood plans have to be in line with the National Planning Policy Framework and the overall strategic approach and policies set out in South Staffordshire's Local Plan.

For more information see Government Guidance on Neighbourhood Plans

In South Staffordshire, the following parishes have been designated as Neighbourhood Plan areas:

Bilbrook Parish Council

Codsall Parish Council

Kinver Parish Council

Penkridge Parish Council

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. For more information about how we process this data see Strategic Planning Team - Data Protection.
