After a busy few days contacting
Doxey residents, a meeting was held on Monday attended by about 100
people. The issues were explained and a petition signed. The meeting
was attended by Parish Councillors, our Borough Councillor and our
M.P. The Borough Council was informed (again!) about Doxey's
concerns and by Wednesday evening the Planning Committee chairman had
decided that a decision should not be made without a site visit. This
will be scheduled sometime in the next few weeks which gives us time to
re-iterate our arguments and get some press publicity. (see the
Newsletter) Over 20 Doxey residents attended the Committee meeting and heard the Chairman's decision.

unveiled their plans for the area south of Doxey.
They were fundamentally different from the those published, jointly
with Taylor Wimpey, six months earlier. There was a half-hearted
attempt to consult with an exhibition, arranged at very short notice,
in the Church. The general feeling seemed to be that the plans were
unsatisfactory in that they ignored the previous joint plan and
Stafford Borough's plan for Stafford which is just about to be finally
It was hoped that the reaction would cause Bellway to rethink their plans to make them acceptable to local residents and the Borough Council.
No such luck !
Bellway have now resubmitted the plans with only minor changes
The plans can be viewed at the Civic Centre Offices or at their website
