Adopted Core Strategy

On the 11th December 2012 South Staffordshire Council formally adopted the Core Strategy (Local Plan) Development Plan Document.

Before the Core Strategy could be adopted, an independent inspector was appointed by the Secretary of State to examine the 'soundness' of the Submitted Core Strategy. The inspector reported back to the Council on 17th October 2012 stating that the Core Strategy was sound with agreed modifications put forward by the Council through the course of the Examination.

The Main Modifications, together with additional Modifications proposed by the Council, have been applied to the Core Strategy document that was submitted for Examination to produce a final version of the Core Strategy, which was adopted by the Council.
