Plans submitted to build four detached homes in empty land at Hagley Park Farm, Slitting Mill, have been approved by Cannock Chase Council, despite receiving a total of 16 objections. 

Objectors claimed that the new homes would ruin the landscape and that construction work would result in the loss of protected trees. 

They also claimed that the road in front of the farm, Jones Lane, is too narrow to support new accommodation. They argued that the amount of traffic that these new properties will bring will be impractical for the size of the road. 

Despite these complaints, the council’s planning committee approved the plans at a meeting held last Wednesday (5 June). 

Councillor Mike Sutherland stated that “houses are needed” in the area and described the proposed plans as a “great development”. This comes after Cannock Chase Council approved plans to build 58 homes on the site of the old Aelfgar School in Rugeley.
