Call for sites

Lichfield District Council is carrying out a ‘Call for Sites’ promotion to help identify additional land for future various uses within the district to be identified at the forthcoming stages of our Local Plan Review process. The next stage of the Local Plan Review will be a further consultation in early 2019.

Information received will be also used to inform the evidence base supporting the review of the Local Plan, including future editions of the Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment, the Employment Land Availability Assessment and the Brownfield Land Register amongst others.

We are asking interested parties to suggest sites they think would be suitable to help meet the future needs of the district through the Call for Sites process. The Call for Sites is an essential piece of evidence to support the Local Plan Review process.

New sites should be submitted through the Call for Sites process where you wish this to be considered as part of the ongoing work on the Local Plan Review

To ensure that we have the most up to date information we are also requesting that any sites submitted previously to the Call for Sites process are resubmittedWhere sites are not resubmitted they will be disregarded. This will enable us to disregard sites that are no longer available and update data where there have been changes such as contact details or agents.

Please note that our Call for Sites is always open and is an ongoing process. If you wish your site to be considered in the lead up to the next consultation then sites should be submitted or resubmitted by Tuesday 6 November 2018 at 5pm. Submissions after this date will still be added to the call for sites database but may not be considered through the next consultation in early 2019.

The submission of a site through the Call for Sites process only places the site before the council for consideration as a potential site for future development. The inclusion of any site within this process does not indicate that it will be allocated or successfully obtain planning permission for development.

In order for Call for Sites submissions to be considered through the current Local Plan Review process the closing date is Tuesday 6 November 2018 at 17:00. 

If you would like to submit a site for consideration, please complete the call for sites form which and provide a map of the site showing a clear site boundary. You can download forms below:

The information we receive will be mapped and entered into a database and will be used to inform the preparation of the Local Plan Allocations document.
