You can register for updates on our Local Plan and all future consultations through our consultation portal.
All planning decisions - from deciding whether to build a new shopping centre, to whether to approve a new housing development - are assessed against a framework.
This type of framework is called a Local Plan. It helps to make sure the district is developed in the right way, including building the right number and types of houses, developing the right kind of shopping and recreation facilities, getting the right office and industrial spaces, creating opportunities for local jobs to be nurtured and protecting our wildlife, landscapes and heritage.
The Local Plan is made up of a number of documents. The adopted Local Plan Strategy and the Local Plan Allocations will replace the 1998 Lichfield District Local Plan - it is supported by a number of supplementary planning documents. Local communities may also wish to progress their own Neighbourhood Plans.
