Planning Matters

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.


College Field High Court Appeal

It was reported in this article 'Chris Young secures the first successful High Court challenge to a neighbourhood plan decision' the Secretary of State has consented to Judgment in the High Court challenge of his refusal of permission for 100 houses. However this does not mean that the College has won planning consent to build on the playing fields, only that the decision of the Secretary of State has been put back and it will be looked at again. There are further details in this Burton Mail article.

Update (September 2015) - The Secretary of State has considered all of the evidence and does not feel that the inquiry needs to be reopened into the College Fields appeal. His decision was expected by 12 November but has been delayed.

The East Staffordshire Local Plan was adopted at Full Council on Thursday 15 October 2015. All details can be found in the latest News and Update section on the examination website.
