Monitoring judges how effective an adopted plan is and provides a sound evidence base for making decisions on new policies and proposals. Cannock Chase Council monitors key issues in the District detailed in the following reports:
Authorities Monitoring Report
The Authorities Monitoring Report (AMR) monitors the implementation of plans and policies to assess if the Council's objectives are being achieved.
Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) and Employment Land Availability Assessment (ELAA)
The Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) and Employment Land Availability Assessment (ELAA) documents are updated annually to identify land that is suitable and available to meet future housing and employment requirements within Cannock Chase District. The interactive map shows the ELA and SHLAA sites. The sites have been assessed and are listed in categories to show their status.
The Councils’ Call for Sites process is open all year round enabling landowners and/or developer to submit information on sites they wish to be considered for housing and/or employment development. Should you wish to submit a new site for consideration for development (or update details on a previously submitted site) please complete the Call for Sites form (available below) and forward it to the Planning Policy Team via the contact details provided on the form. Please note, this process is not a planning application for development. The process enables landowners and/or developers to bring a site to the Councils’ attention for further consideration via Local Plan documents; however this does determine the possibility of planning permission being granted/refused for development. Any development on a site could only be enabled via full planning permission.
Self Build Housing
Cannock Chase Council has a duty to keep a register of any individuals or housing associations who would be interested in carrying out their own self-build development project within the District and to pro-actively take the demand for self-build plots into account when carrying out planning functions.
The Council plan to provide a summary of interest in self -build in the Authorities Monitoring Report and to take this development into account when writing the Cannock Chase Local Plan (Part 2), which includes Site Allocations. The Council would be interested to hear from any developers who would be interested in providing self-build plots within the District.
If you are a resident or housing association who have an active interest in building your own home and would like to be put on the Cannock Chase Council self-build list please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact details, details of the type of development you are interested in building and a prefernce for the area you would prefer to be located in.
Brownfield Land Register
The Government has brought into force a requirement for councils to prepare and publish a Brownfield Land Register (BLR) by 31 December 2017. An explanation of the Brownfield Land Register (BLR) and how it has been created is set out in the document below. This includes a summary list of sites and overview maps. The full BLR open data csv file is also available to download below separately.
The BLR will be reviewed annually and new sites can be submitted throughout the year via our open Call for Sites. There is currently no deadline set for the production of Part 2 Brownfield Land Register for Cannock Chase District (see Cabinet Report 16/11/17 for further details). The BLR contains public sector information licensed under the Open Government Licence v3.0.
The BLR sites will also be added to the online Policies Map.
