Cannock Chase Council Local Plan Consultation

Cannock Chase Council is seeking your views on important plans and documents that will shape the future of Cannock Chase District. 

The consultation runs from Monday 2nd July until Tuesday 28th August 2018 on the following documents:

Cannock Chase Local Plan Issues and Scope document

The Local Plan helps to shape the way in which the physical, economic, social and environmental characteristics of Cannock Chase District will change over a 15 year period. As we are starting on a new plan we are considering what issues it should be dealing with, for example matters relating to the environment, housing, employment and town centres. We are not looking at individual sites at this stage, but the more strategic issues which a new plan should cover. We would welcome your views.

Sustainability Appraisal Scoping report

It is a legal requirement that when we produce the Local Plan this is informed by a Sustainability Appraisal, so we are consulting on what the scope of this should be.

Statement of Community Involvement

We have to produce a Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) which sets out how we engage communities in all aspects of the planning process. We are updating our current SCI (which was produced in 2014) and are consulting on this.

How to make comments

All consultation documents are available to view on the Cannock Chase Council website at and at Cannock Chase Council, Civic Centre, Beecroft Road, Cannock, Staffs, WS11 1BG as well as in all of the libraries in the district.
