Bellway Plans - (put off) Decision Day !- WEDNESDAY (17th)
A partial victory ?

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.

[Oct 1st] The planning committee is expected to re-convene towards the end of October - More news when we have it.

Bellway's  More of the (Unwanted !) Same

Bellways revised plan - May 2014 (Compare with previous plans)

Last November Bellway 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 adopted.
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

Points for  consideration when making comments
  • Consultation 
    • Was it adequate last November ?
    • We need further consultation with Bellway and Councils
  • Road Plan
    • Need for Western Access Road  to be built first
  • Footpaths 
    • Not landscaped & not separated from traffic
    • No internal pedestrian routes
  • Play Areas/Open Spaces
    • No play areas within the development
    • 'Open Space' too far from houses
  • Attenuation Pond
    • Was originally further north
    • Excessive landfill needed to increase number of houses
  • Piecemeal Development
    • Not concerned with larger area
    • Doxey may lose access to future facilities located elsewhere
