Richard Mosson

The former leader of Burntwood Town Council has promised the area will get a neighbourhood plan it can be proud of.

The document will help shape future development in the area, but there had been criticism from the Labour opposition group about the lack of progress.

But Cllr Richard Mosson, who led the Conservatives until earlier this month, vowed that it would come to fruition.

“It is moving forward,” he said. “I promised to deliver on the neighbourhood plan for Burntwood and I intend to do just that.

“I have no doubt that it will be a neighbourhood plan to be proud of.”

Labour’s Cllr Sue Woodward said she hoped Burntwood would take full advantage of the opportunity to shape its own future.

“This is a chance to shape the future of issues such as housing, roads and infrastructure,” she said. “I hope we don’t sit on our hands on the neighbourhood plan.”

  1. Who does Cllr Mosson think he is?He spent 12 months in Leadership re- inventing the Neighbourhood Plan unnecessarilly and so slowing down the process. Now after Steve Norman the original chairman of the Neighbourhood plan committee has stepped in to Offer much needed help and guidance Mosson is still trying to claim credit.

  2. Eric, I have not claimed any credit for anything? When leader I promised to deliver a plan, the new Leader wanted me to ensure this happens and wanted me to take the Chair, Steve Norman was invited onto the committee because of his previous experience and I would like to thank Steve publicly firstly for giving up his time and secondly for his contribution which has been excellent, he has some good ideas and I really appreciate his input.
    There is still a lot of work to do, but I am confident that the “Committee” can deliver the right plan for Burntwood. Kirkwells are certainly happy with the progress being made, we have an interim meeting on the 18th June to discuss a specific agenda and the next Committee meeting is on the 5th July.
