New Stafford Borough Local Plan 2020-2040: Issues & Options stage consultation

Stafford Borough Council is now consulting on the Issues and Options document which considers, in detail, the range of issues facing Stafford Borough and how, through a new strategic policy framework, they might be addressed. Included are the levels of housing and employment land development required over the next 20 years, and how this provision might be distributed across the Borough. Some options include the potential for one or more new garden communities / major urban extensions.

CCGs are seeking views on five clinical policies - Difficult Decisions, share your experiences

The six Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent want the views of the patients across the area as they plan services for the future.

Altogether the six CCGs commission over 800 different services and treatments, but availability of these varies across the area.

Together they have been spending around £2 million more per week than they receive, and that means some difficult decisions now need to be made.

Proposal to prescribe gluten-free staple foods to children and adolescents under the age of 18

In the past year (June 2018 to July 2019), Cannock Chase, East Staffordshire, South East Staffordshire and Seisdon Peninsula and Stafford and Surrounds Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) prescribed 16,023 prescriptions for gluten-free foods at a cost of more than a quarter of a million pounds.  The prescription of gluten-free (GF) products is not a cure for coeliac disease, nor does it treat the symptoms.  Medical advice given to patients who are gluten intolerant would be to avoid food products containing gluten.

Call for Citizen Scientists

Transforming the Trent Valley scheme is launching our ‘Big Washlands Watch’ project in 2020. This project aims to learn more about the number and types of species living in the Trent Valley area by encouraging local people to get involved in some citizen science activities. We would like to hear from people and groups within the TTTV scheme area who want to learn more about the wildlife on their doorstep and would like to help us to record it.
