The first part of our Local Plan decided where the future growth would take place in the District – this is the Core Strategy and was adopted in December 2012. The second part, Site Allocations or SAD, looks at the most suitable sites – whether for example housing, employment, open space and recreation – to meet the aims of the Core Strategy.
The South Staffordshire Site Allocations document (SAD) was adopted on 11 September 2018.
The Inspector's Report was issued in May 2018 which said that the SAD was sound with the Modifications proposed and consulted on.

The SAD was sent to the Secretary of State (SoS) on Friday 15th September 2017. The SoS has appointed an independent Inspector, Stephen Pratt BA (Hons) MRTPI who will hold the public Examination into the SAD, its supporting evidence, and will judge whether it is legally compliant and ‘sound'. A number of public hearing session were held between 28 November and 8 December 2017. Consultation was held on proposed modifications to the SAD from 7 February until 21 March 2018.
