Rugeley Power Station redevelopment – Submission of amendment to Outline Planning Application

An amendment to the Outline Planning Application for the mixed-use redevelopment of the Rugeley Power Station site has been submitted to the two local authorities Lichfield District Council (LDC) and Cannock Chase District Council (CCDC). The amendment allows for the inclusion of either an on-site ‘All-Through School’ or a Primary School (as previously detailed on the Outline Planning Application).

The Outline Planning Application received a resolution to grant by the two authorities in January 2020, subject to planning conditions and completion of a Section 106 Agreement (and Unilateral Undertaking). The amendments, which include a full Environmental Statement, will now undergo a consultation and assessment led by the LDC and CCDC planning teams.

A selection of the key documents which have been submitted to LDC and CCDC planning teams are available below. All documents associated with the amendment will be made available on the websites of both local authorities where members of the public will be able to comment on the proposals. All planning documentation is also available in electronic format on request from
