Inspector's Final Report - January 2014
On the 2nd January 2014 the Council received the final report from the Inspector on the examination into the Staffordshire Moorlands Core Strategy. The final report, main modifications and modified maps are available below. It is anticipated that the Core Strategy, as modified, will be considered by the Council for adoption in March 2014. The Planning Inspectorate has confirmed that the Council needs only to notify respondents and interested parties who have requested notification following its adoption.
Submission Stage - September 2012
The Revised Submission Core Strategy was submitted to the Secretary of State for independent examination on the 4th September 2012 and examination hearing sessions were held between the 5th and the 8th February 2013. Links to the various stages of the Core Strategy can be found towards the bottom of this page.
The Core Strategy is the key Local Development Framework (LDF) document. It is a strategic District wide plan which influences how and where the Staffordshire Moorlands will develop in the future. It sets out what the District Council would like to achieve in each of the main towns and the rural areas outside the Peak District National Park. The Core Strategy provides the framework for future LDF documents which will then identify specific sites for development in the District (Site Allocations DPD) and provide detailed guidance to supplement the policies (Supplementary Planning Documents).
The Core Strategy is informed by information, aspirations and actions from many other documents and surveys and also from consultations and engagement with stakeholders, whilst its policies and proposals will be delivered and measured through various implementation and monitoring mechanisms and procedures.
The area within the Peak District National Park is the responsibility of the Peak District National Park Authority, a separate local planning authority who prepare their own Peak District Core Strategy.
