Annual residents’ survey, have your say on Tamworth as a place to live, council services and council spending

Take the survey and have your say before 23 October 2022.

In this survey we ask questions about what Tamworth is like as a place to live, your thoughts on Tamworth Borough Council services, how you think we should spend money collected from council tax and business rates and how we handle complaints.

The survey will take around 12 - 15 minutes to complete. You don’t need any specialist knowledge or experience of contacting us to take part, just a willingness to share your views.

At the end of the survey, you’ll be able to share your contact details if you want to be entered into a prize draw to win one of win one of five £30 gift voucher prizes to spend at a Tamworth store.

The results of the survey will be used to help councillors set the council’s budget (how money will be spent next year) and the priorities for the council in the future.

This survey is specifically for residents who live within the borough of Tamworth.

Take the survey and have your say before 23 October 2022.

 

Have your say on Tamworth Borough Council’s draft validation checklist for planning applications.

Our validation checklist is to be used by those who want to submit a planning application. All items need to be submitted before we can carry out any work as the planning authority.

This is a six-week consultation, please share your views by 20 September 2022.

Background

When submitting a planning application, you must submit relevant plans and drawings to make sure that all those with an interest in your proposal know exactly what you are applying for. Anyone can comment on a planning application, so range from those who have experience in planning such as officers to those with none such as your neighbour so this information must be as clear as possible.

The minimum requirements for planning applications are set nationally. However, these basic guidelines do not set out clearly all the other documentation that will be required to fully assess proposals.

This can lead to delays if we have to ask for further documentation and application details after the validation stage when the publicity, and consultation and assessment period has begun.

To help with this, in common with many other local authorities, Tamworth Borough Council has had its current validation list since June 2017. This is a checklist of documents that need to be submitted prior to a planning application being validated.

It is now time to review our existing checklist.

It has been designed to help developers when preparing applications for planning permission and other planning consents, by providing clear information as to what should be submitted with each application type.

We also provide a table to use for each different application type and the document/plans required.

Please have your say by 20 September 2022.
