There have been plans now for a while for more houses to built in Wombourne. When and where is uncertain, but the Council have just released more information to show the progress.
As you may know, South Staffordshire Council carried out 3 separate consultations for their Site Allocations document (SAD) between March and November 2014. Including main sites, additional sites and Gypsy and Traveller sites.
You can still read all of the documents on this page: https://www.sstaffs.gov.uk/planning/site-allocations.cfm
Update for 2017
The latest is that the Council are now working towards the next stage of public consultation. The target for this is January 2017. This will be the PUBLICATION PLAN stage It represents the final plan that they will be sending to the Secretary of State later in 2017.
New houses being built in Wombourne is a big change. So as always, we would encourage you to get involved in all of these processes. Once the decisions have been made, it’s too late.
This page tells you exactly how you do that including timescales: https://www.sstaffs.gov.uk/planning/site-allocations.cfm
