Cannock Chase Local Plan 2018 to 2040

The Regulation 19 public consultation on the new Local Plan took place from Monday 5th February until 5pm on Monday 18th March 2024 - the consultation documents are available on the Local Plan webpage for reference.  This is the final stage of preparation before the plan is submitted in Summer 2024 for examination by a Planning Inspector. 

Thank you to all the stakeholders and members of the public who took the time to provide comments on the proposals, these will now be processed prior to Submission for the Examination. 

The Cannock Chase District Local Plan is designed to guide and manage the development of the District and is intended to replace the existing Cannock Chase Local Plan (Part 1) 2014 upon adoption by the Council. The new plan contains local planning policies and site allocations which will meet the development needs of the District over the plan period to 2040. The Local Plan addresses needs and opportunities in relation to housing, the local economy, community facilities and infrastructure. Policies will safeguard the environment, enable adaptation to climate change and help secure high quality accessible design. The plan has policies on a range of topics which will be used to help determine planning applications. 

The Local Plan has been under development since 2018. During this time a variety of evidence has been gathered to inform the plan and it has been subject to three separate public consultations. The Council have also worked with stakeholders including land owners, agents and developers, infrastructure providers, neighbouring authorities, the County Council and government bodies to develop the Local Plan.
