Combining the Core Strategy, and Rugeley Town Centre Area Action Plan, Cannock Chase Council is consulting, up until the 17th of September 2012, on a new Local Plan.

The basic strategy in the plan is to focus  development across the existing settlements of Cannock, Hednesford, Heath Hayes, Norton Canes, Rugeley, and Brereton.

  • Cannock, Hednesford and Hayes will see 1,550 houses on urban sites and 750 homes as an urban extension on a strategic site west of Pye Green Road. and an initial 58 ha of employment land with more at Kingswood Lakeside, if required.
  • Rugeley and Brereton will see 680 houses on urban sites. A strategic development allocation to the east of Rugeley within the Lichfield District Local Plan contributes 500 houses to meeting the growth requirements of Rugeley and Brereton via the south-east Staffordshire strategy.
  • Norton Canes 120 houses on urban sites and 670 houses via urban extensions to the south of the settlement.
