This section of the village web site has been established for major plans/development affecting the village in general, eg. the college playing fields, etc. It is not intended to cover all plans. Details of all local planning applications are available directly from ESBC.
Both the threat and the reality of large scale developments within the village and surrounding areas is never far away. Below are links to planning matters that have a major impact on the village including ESBC consultations.

Revised description (May 2015) for a mixed use development comprising of up to 385 dwellings, provision of 1.69ha of land for a single form entry primary school and associated infrastructure including details of access with all other matters reserved. A public meeting was arranged by SoS on Tuesday 9 June at the Priory Centre, Stretton. Further details on this and other development proposals for the local area can be read in the Save our Stretton newsletter. Update: ESBC has refused permission (21 July 2015). This went to appeal but in November 2016 it was announced that the the Secretary of State has dismissed the appeal for the build of 300+ homes and a Primary School on land off Craythorne Road, therefore the refusal for permission stands.
