Continuing the fight..

The second part of the Local Plan for Lichfield District is known as the “Local Plan Allocations” document. This has revealed that Burntwood and beyond is still under the threat of further development. Information is available on the Lichfield DC website, and the “Call for Sites” lets individuals, organisations and builders suggest sites for development and future adoption.

Details can be found on the links below, which show the areas in question. Primarily we’ve been made aware of plans concerning the land behind Fulfen Primary school on Rugeley Road. This stretches to Coulter Lane, Nether Lane and Church Road. Details of this can be found in this PDF document.

Another area which is declared an “area of interest” is land south of Highfields Road, which is located here. Further details of this plan can be found in this PDF document.

We also have a list of all the proposed Burntwood sites. These can be viewed in this Word document.

NOTE
It is important to note the following comment from the file above…

Changes to the Green Belt boundary will be made to the south of Burntwood to accommodate the residential allocation (Site B14) to assist in meeting the housing requirement for Burntwood.

Changes to the Green Belt boundary will be made to remove the St Matthews estate from the Green Belt, as set out in Policy Burntwood 1: Burntwood Environment (Local Plan Strategy) and accommodate residential allocations (Site B15) to assist in meeting the housing requirement for Burntwood.

We will have more news shortly. Please do head back here for more information.
