We have proposals for a garden community which could see thousands of new homes, schools, transport links and jobs in the north of Stafford Borough. Further information on Garden Communities can be found on Gov.Uk and the TCPA webpages.
The scheme has been backed by funding from the Government. In March 2019 the borough was chosen as a possible location for a new garden settlement with the Government contributing £750,000 to develop detailed plans for the key infrastructure required - such as highway improvements, schools, water and energy provision - to support a sustainable development.
A further £360,000 was secured from Government in 2021 to help support studies to understand the location in more detail. The minutes of Cabinet 5 August 2021 set this delegation out in further detail
The concept for a new garden community, with a working name of ‘Meecebrook’ at Cold Meece near Stone, will be considered as part of our Local Plan process 2020-2040.
