Sale of Land at Tilling Drive by Stafford Borough Council

Following discussion at the General Purposes Committee on 22nd May 2018, the Town Council wrote to Stafford Borough Council expressing their dissatisfaction at the proposed sale of part of Tilling Drive Playing Field, a dissatisfaction which is also clearly evident from the strong objections of the residents of that local area.

Councillor Andy Osgathorpe, Chairman of the Planning Committee and proposer of the motion at the General Purposes Committee said

“The further reduction of Stone’s Green Infrastructure and designated Local Green Spaces is contrary to the Plan for Stafford Borough and undermines the status of designated Local Green Space in the draft Neighbourhood Plan.”
