Your comments should be made in writing and the simplest way is to use our online consultation portal.

You can make comments direct to different parts of the plan and there are prompts to guide you through the system.

We have also produced a step-by-step guide to help.  Visit Local Plan Consultation South Staffordshire Council (sstaffs.gov.uk) for more information.

You can also email your comments or post to South Staffordshire Council, Community Hub, Wolverhampton Road, Codsall, WV8 1PX.  Remember your comments much reach us by 12 noon on Friday, December 23rd, 2022.

We have one more online Q&A session scheduled for Wednesday, December 14th, focussing on the north of the district.  This covers Penkridge, Huntington and the land proposed south of Stafford.

Anyone can join, there is no need to register and the link for the meeting can be found here: Publication Plan Public Engagement South Staffordshire Council (sstaffs.gov.uk)

If you missed our earlier sessions, it’s not a problem, just join next week’s meeting, wherever you live and whatever village you want to know more about.

We’ve made it really easy to view the plan and supporting documents online.  Just go to the main page of the council website, click on the consultation banner at the top of the page and it takes you straight to the consultation page.  Here you can view the plan itself, or read the FAQs, Local Plan summary, guidance note for making comments, or response form and there are links to our consultation events and the supporting evidence.

Hard copies of the documents are also available at parish council offices and libraries in the district, and at the Community Hub in Codsall.

This is the final stage of consultation before the new Local Plan is submitted to the Government and an independent planning inspector is appointed to carry out a public examination into whether it is sound and legally compliant.

All comments made to the plan must be made in writing, and during the 6-week consultation period.  For more information see the council website www.sstaffs.gov.uk/localplanreview or email localplans@sstaffs.gov.uk
