A document which will help shape future developments across Lichfield and Burntwood has been approved by councillors .
The Local Plan Allocations Document deals with how land in the area is used.
Councillor Iain Eadie, Cabinet member for investment, economic growth and tourism, said the approval at a meeting of Lichfield District Council was “a great achievement”.
“I am delighted the Planning Inspectorate found our Local Plan to be sound, and that we now have adopted the Local Plan Allocations Document,” he said.
“These documents, alongside local parish councils’ neighbourhood plans, will help us to positively shape our district in the future.
“Our allocations document sets out where and what kind of development can take place on different land across the district.
“It is the second part of our Local Plan Strategy, which the economic growth team at the council has worked really hard on.
“Having a sound plan, and a land supply for the next five years that identifies almost half of the district’s housing needs over the term of the whole plan, is a great achievement.”
