Planning

As the minerals and waste planning authority, Staffordshire County Council (SCC) are responsible for determining planning applications relating to minerals and waste development. They are also responsible for determining applications relating to their own developments (e.g. at schools and new road improvement schemes). All other types of planning application (e.g. housing and commercial development) are dealt with by District/Borough Councils, although they do consult SCC on certain proposals before they make their final decisions.

All planning applications that are received are publicised and any local residents who may be directly affected by these proposals are notified. Councils are obliged to undertake a formal period of public consultation before they determine a planning application, to consult and engage with people and organisations, to gain their views.

Planning Applications and Decisions 

As part of the planning process, applications in the Parish of Fradley and Streethay, are passed to the Parish Council for consideration.

Please visit the Staffordshire County Council and Lichfield District Council websites for more information on planning applications:
