Critical Period Approaching

The examination of the Lichfield District Local Plan Allocations will be held at the Lichfield Council Chamber, commencing Monday 4th September for 2 weeks until Friday 14th September. There are considerable implications for the future of Burntwood, in particular the impact of housing on many of our local “greenbelt sites” for those interested you can access the programme and the important matters relating to Burntwood via the following web site:…/lichfield-local-plan-allocations/
In particular we would draw your attention to the Examination News – Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment: Section B3 Burntwood pages 43 to 67 inclusive that relate to past, current housing sites, plus future housing sites currently put forward by land owners and developers for development over the next 10 years.

In summary this is a critical period for the Burntwood area – developers are again attempting to violate our surrounding Green Belt land and are ignoring the opportunities to re purpose brownfield sites. Burntwood Action Group will be representing Burntwood our supporters with written statements to the examiner and also during the relevant days at the examination.

We will keep everyone updated as the examination progresses but in the meantime if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.
