    In response to customer requests for greater access to planners and planning information, we have introduced a planning surgery service.

    Customers can come and speak to an experienced planner about their building projects at Moorlands House in Leek every Wednesday between 9am and 4pm.

    Advance appointments are not always necessary but, to avoid having to wait, customers are asked to call Customer Services on 0345 605 3010 to make an appointment.

  • Give us your feedback on our three-year financial plan

    The Council will be setting its budget for 2016/17 in February. Part of that process includes updating the Medium Term Financial Plan (MTFP) for the next three years.

    The MTFP sets out how the resources that are available to the Council will be allocated to the services we provide in line with priorities which have been established following consultation with local residents, councillors and other partners.

    These priorities are focussed on:

  • Moorlands take centre stage in mythical film

    There aren’t many people that would disagree that the Staffordshire Moorlands benefits from film star looks – which is just one of the reasons the area plays a lead role in a successful feature film.

    Independent film maker Paul Osborne used the district, and his farm in Cheddleton, as the backdrop to his first feature film ‘Arthur and Merlin’ -  a re-telling of the original Celtic tales behind these beloved mythical characters.

    The film is growing in popularity shown by the latest reports - it's in the top twenty of the UK DVD charts and top ten of the i-Tunes chart.

  • Free parking for Christmas shoppers

    We are once again offering residents, visitors and local businesses an early gift in the shape of free parking on December Saturdays in the run-up to Christmas.

    Parking in Council car parks will be free on Saturdays 5, 12 and 19 December. Drivers are reminded that whilst parking is free, all other regulations still apply including maximum stays and parking correctly.

  • Leek's Saturday outdoor market cancelled

    After monitoring the weather forecasts from the Met Office for today, overnight and all day Saturday, severe winds of up to 50mph are being forecast for Leek and an alert warning has been issued.

    Consequently, Staffordshire Moorlands District Council has  decided to cancel the Saturday outdoor market for  safety reasons and is contacting all traders affected.

    However, the Leek indoor Butter Market and Trestle Market will still be open for business as usual.

  • Christmas Gift Bazaar now open

    The popular Christmas Gift Bazaar is now open in the Art Gallery at the Nicholson Museum & Art Gallery between 10:00am to 4pm Monday to Saturday through to 24 December.

    Fast becoming a festive favourite, it offers an exciting range of carefully sourced, quality gifts and goods at reasonable prices for everyone. Come along and enjoy festive activities in the lead up to Christmas in an enchanting environment that will include, visits from Santa, mulled wine and mince pies and cumulate in a spectacular Christmas performance by the Phoenix Singers on Saturday 19 December.

  • Have you been affected by Loan Sharks? Visit our advice event on 18th November at Leek Market.

    Anyone can be a victim of a loan shark – your family, friends, neighbours and even you.

    It’s not always easy to spot a loan shark as they come in all shapes and sizes and will at first appear friendly, just part of the community. It is when you can’t pay that they will turn on you.

    A loan shark is someone who lends cash as an unauthorised business.  

    If someone is struggling to pay a debt the loan shark will resort to threats, violence and intimidation to get what he thinks you owe, even if the debt has been paid off several times over.

  • New 5p carrier bag charge

    As of October 5th 2015 a 5p charge will be added per carrier bag from many high street shops. From supermarkets to high-street stores, if they have 250 or more full-time employees nationally then the charge will be made in a bid to reduce waste.

    Money generated from the new charge is going to be donated to a charity. This could save over £60 million in litter clean-up costs and is expected to generate tens of millions of pounds each year for the charity of the retailers choice.

  • Terms of Use.

    This news site is run as a news blog by an individual who finances it. This is a non commercial non profitable blog.

    The purpose is a to make local news available for non commercial use.

    It relies on News feeds from Councils, BBC, Police, Local Blogs, Local news.In order to add extra content and services our external links and displays are free.

    As the blog is to promote local news free and is non commercial non profit making network it would not be possible to pay Press Association Commercial licence fees for content because it is not set up to make a financial gain.

    A recent court case agrees commercial users can be charged for content that is resold for profit. However non commercial blogs etc would not be charged.

    However it appears some press associations are getting rather greedy and are chasing private bloggers for fees if they are using some local newspaper feeds.

    They appear to be using a debt collection business called Buchanan Clark & Wells of Glasgow who are sending made up charges for use of copyright material.

    If you are a private blogger having the same problem I would like to hear from you.

    If you are a online newspaper or press association your comments would also be welcome.

    If anyone has a problem with the content of this site and wishes for any content to be remove please contact me.
