Last chance to have say on Stafford Borough plan

People now have the chance to have a final say on a plan for how the future of Stafford Borough will be shaped over the next 17 years. The Local Plan identifies areas set aside for development in the future – including thousands of extra homes and sites for new businesses.

A public hearing was held by a Government planning inspector in October and November last year as part of the process. Now residents, businesses and organisations can comment on the changes to the proposals which will be considered by the inspector before his final report is prepared.
