Members of the public can view the Neighbourhood Plan and make representations at The Old Mining College Centre, Burntwood Library and Burntwood Memorial Institute. 


The Burntwood Neighbourhood Plan outlines how the area could be shaped in the future and, if approved, it will provide a framework for potential development, which will form part of Lichfield District Council’s Local Plan.

Lichfield District Council is now holding a six-week consultation so local people and organisations can see the Burntwood Neighbourhood Plan and give their views. This is running until Friday 20 September 2019.

Following this, the district council will collate all the comments and pass them on to an independent examiner. The examiner will consider these along with the neighbourhood plan when assessing whether it meets national requirements and can proceed to the next stage of the process, which is a referendum within the neighbourhood area.
