Local Plan Update
The Council has adopted an updated Local Development Scheme following its 6th November meeting. The Council report contains further background information.
The updated Local Development Scheme sets out a revised timetable for the production of the Local Plan Review. It also confirms that the Area Action Plan for Cannock Town Centre will no longer be progressed.
As you may recall, we recently consulted upon our Local Plan Issues and Options (2019) in summer this year. As part of this we asked for views on how our policy approach to the District’s town centres should be taken forward in light of the issues facing town centres across the country and given recent changes to national planning policy and guidance.
After consideration of the consultation responses and the factors outlined above, we have decided to no longer continue with production of an Area Action Plan for Cannock Town Centre (which has previously been detailed in our Local Development Scheme, with the last consultation on Issues and Options in 2017). Strategic policies for the District’s town centres will be taken forward through the Local Plan Review with detailed planning matters to be delegated to other documents, as necessary. This will enable a more flexible and responsive approach to be taken to the future development of the Districts’ town centres, helping to deliver positive changes to these important places.
The summary of the consultation responses to the Local Plan - Issues and Options Consultation (2019) were reported to Cabinet at a meeting on the 17th October 2019.
The documents from the Local Plan Consultations and more information on the production of the Local Plan can be read on the Local Plan page.
