The Parish Council met for a Development Day on 9th January 2016 attended by Cllr Ian Courts, Deputy Leader of Solihull MBC & Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Managed Growth, and Maurice Barlow, Principal Planning Officer, Policy and Spatial Planning, who provided a briefing session on the consultation process for the Local Plan Review. Please see below for your comments to be recorded with links attached to the Local Plan Review Consultation.

Reviewing the Plan for Solihull’s Future – Scope, Issues and Options Consultation.

It is important that councils have an up-to-date local plan in place. This is so that the development needed for their area can be met whilst preserving its character. The production of a local plan allows communities to shape the way that their area changes and is used.

The Council’s existing local plan was adopted in 2013 and is now in need of review. The consultation marks the start of the process. The consultation responses will help the Council prepare a draft plan with a preferred option in 2016. A final version of the reviewed local plan will be published in 2017, before it is examined by an independent Inspector.

All responses should be made in writing by Friday 22nd January 2016, either by post or email, to the following address:
