Wednesfield North Labour Councillors today issued further information to their Local Residents relating to plans and proposals to build on current ‘Green Belt ‘ in Essington.
This message is primarily aimed at Wednesfield North constituents who have an interest, or who are interested in the recently announced proposal to develop 2,500 homes on what is current ‘Green Belt’ land alongside Linthouse Lane and Kitchen Lane and within the Parish of Essington and the District Boundary of South Staffordshire D.C.
Councillor Bateman said ” have received this further information from South Staffordshire District Council.
South Staffordshire District Council is still finalising work on their current Site Allocations document (SAD) but have also begun work on the review of their Local Plan.
They inform me that they are working towards publishing Issues and Options for the new Local Plan in Autumn of this year, by which time they hope the revised NPPF will be in place.
This document will set out strategic growth options for South Staffordshire and consider what levels of growth can be accommodated. They further inform me that they are currently updating our Strategic Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA) which will contain all the sites suggested to them (including Linthouse Lane) and this will be the starting point for site options.
Wednesfield North City Councillors Mary Bateman PhiIBateman and Rita Potter have asked that their contact details be added to South Staffordshire District Councils Local Plan database, and that means that we will receive automatic updates on local planning matters.
I would now urge any of our Wednesfield North constituents or local residents in Wednesfield who wish to be added to the database, to do so now, by sending your email address to email@example.com .
We will continue to inform Wednesfield North residents of new information as we receive it of plans around this development.
