Update on Lichfield District Council (LDC)’s Local Plan

LDC Planning Officers are preparing their report on the responses to the Local Plan Land Allocations Consultation which ended on 12th May.

That report and Officers advice to Lichfield District Council on how to respond to the Consultation will be presented to Councillors on the following dates:

19th September: Presentation to LDC’s Overview and Scrutiny Committee.
7th November: Presentation to LDC’s Cabinet.
19th December: Presentation to full LDC Council.

We wait with great interest to learn how LDC Officers interpret and react to the huge number of objections to their plans to put 330 of Burntwood’s housing allocation on the Green Belt.

What will be even more important is how our elected representatives respond to the advice of their Planning Officers. It is the Councillors who make the final decisions on Planning Policy.
