Planning

The Parish Council is a statutory consultee on all planning applications and uses the adopted YOXALL NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN as a guide in advising ESBC on planning and development proposals they receive for Yoxall . The main settlement area of the village lies within a CONSERVATION AREA which affords further protection when considering new proposals.

Lioncourt (St. Peters Walk).

The developer asked the P.C. to take ownership of the frontages to Hadley Street as well as the car park. Transfer of the land to the P.C. would include a 10 year dowry to cover maintenance costs. The P.C. will only maintain the site and not take ownership, with the 10 year dowry being paid.

Solicitors are ironing out the final agreement which will need Staffs C.C. approval.

Lioncourt have confirmed that they will not be pursuing any further development in Yoxall and have abandoned the farm yard scheme, leaving Mr. Docksey to market the site for barn conversion. We are waiting for a formal application to be submitted.
