We engage with and influence the planning system to ensure appropriate development of the waterways and their surroundings. Our branch is consulted on, considers and responds to over 200 planning matters each year, about half of which are planning applications.
You can read a quarterly roundup of the more notable ones in the Planning Matters report in our newsletter Lichfield Lines.
For further information on these matters, or to discuss current consultations, contact our Planning Officer, Philip Sharpe via firstname.lastname@example.org or 01889 583330.
You can help by letting us know about any significant planning applications affecting waterways in your area.
