We want to know what you think about life in Tamworth and every year, we carry out consultation with you on issues such as litter, anti-social behaviour, local facilities, health, regeneration, housing and how your money is spent. This can be meetings, exhibitions, focus groups, questionnaire surveys and on-line forms.

Citizens Panel: This is a made up of local residents who we ask about local services. If you join, we will contact you three or four times a year with postal or online surveys to get your views. You may be invited to take part in a questionnaire, discussion groups or workshops. The results are then used to inform decisions about how we deliver our services.

Local Development Documents Consultations

We are interested in your views on the following documents: 

You can find out more about each of the documents and view a link to the full documents, along with details on how to comment below.

Infrastructure Delivery Plan

We have recently updated the Infrastructure Delivery Plan (IDP), which is a key Local Plan document, detailing what infrastructure projects are due to be delivered in the borough over the plan period 2006-2031.  Previously in Appendix B of the Local Plan 2006-2031 the IDP is now a standalone document, making it easier to view and update.  The draft IDP was put together with assistance from infrastructure providers and details projects in areas such as transport, public realm, green infrastructure, sport, culture, education and utilities that are required to support Tamworth’s growth to 2031.

Regulation 123 List

We are currently looking to adopt a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) and have previously consulted on a Draft Charging Schedule. You can find out more about the levy on the CIL pages of our website (  Regulation 123 of the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) Regulations (2010) (as amended) sets out the need for the CIL charging authority to produce a list of “relevant infrastructure” which will be funded in whole or in part by money collected though CIL.  The draft Regulation 123 has been compiled from the latest IDP.

Planning Obligations Supplementary Planning Document

To accurately reflect the introduction of the Community Infrastructure Levy Charging Schedule in Tamworth and update the procedure of seeking planning obligations a new Planning Obligations Supplementary Planning Document has been drafted.  Once adopted, this will form part of the Development Plan for Tamworth and will supersede the current Planning Obligations SPD and Open Space SPD.

Planning Obligations SPD

The consultation runs from Monday 16th April until 5pm on Wednesday 30th May 2018.
