Neighbourhood Plan

Welcome to Hednesford’s Neighbourhood Plan – placing the future of Hednesford in your hands.

What is a Neighbourhood Plan?

A neighbourhood plan sets out a vision for development for years to come, bringing change where it’s needed and preservation where this is important. The neighbourhood plan gives you, as a resident of Hednesford, the chance to contribute towards shaping your community, giving local people a voice.

Latest Update

In a Referendum held on 11 October 2018 the voters of Hednesford supported the adoption of a Neighbourhood Plan for Hednesford which will be used by Cannock Chase Council to help it decide planning applications in the town.
