Help shape the emerging proposals for new homes and community facilities north of Penkridge

South Staffordshire District Council has proposed the allocation of land north of Penkridge for new homes and community facilities in the new draft Local Plan for the District. Informed by the vision for Penkridge North established by the District Council in the draft Local Plan, family-owned housebuilder Bloor Homes and West Midlands-based developer St Philips, are preparing proposals for a beautiful and vibrant new neighbourhood of family and affordable homes, community hub and facilities including a new school, in addition to extensive green public open space and active travel routes.

Updated Autumn 2023

We wanted to understand the views and aspirations of people in Penkridge and the surrounding areas to help us shape the emerging proposals. This will ensure our plans are designed to best meet the needs and aspirations of the growing community. We carried out in-depth consultation with the community through the summer of 2023 before submitting planning applications for the new neighbourhood, and we created this website to provide the community with an opportunity to view information about the emerging proposals, provide feedback and help us to shape a neighbourhood that delivers the amenities, homes and facilities that Penkridge needs. You can also complete a short sign-up form to ensure that you receive updates about further stages in the consultation process.

The pre-application process has now ended as we prepare to submit planning applications to South Staffordshire District Council.

However, we are keeping the website live so that members of the community can view the previous consultation presentation, as well as keeping up to date on progress with the planning process.

You can continue to get in touch with any comments and questions about the emerging plans via our dedicated contact form.

Updated Autumn 2023

Bloor Homes has submitted a full planning application for the first phase of Penkridge North

The plans would see the delivery of 135 high quality homes and extensive green open spaces on land to the east of the A449 Stafford Road, opposite the existing Bloor Homes neighbourhood.

A mix of new homes is proposed, including 2, 3 and 4 bed family homes and bungalows for those seeking to downsize. 40% of the new homes will be affordable homes in a mix of tenures, including social rent, shared ownership and First Homes.

The development will also deliver the first stage of the new Active Travel scheme that will link the new neighbourhood with the village centre. It will also provide the first part of Penkridge’s new Community Riverside Park, providing public access to the western riverside for play and recreation for the first time.
