It also identifies draft development boundaries for towns and villages across the District and retail boundaries for the town centres.

  • Be a friend of Biddulph Grange

    Landscape lovers and buffs of Biddulph Grange are being offered the opportunity to get involved in the management and development of this attractive Country Park in the Staffordshire Moorlands.

    The historic Park landscape is full of wildlife and great places to walk and is already held in high regard by visitors – many of whom return regularly to enjoy the environment.

    Now Staffordshire Moorlands District Council is looking to meet up with them, and anyone else who’s interested, to explore how they can play a role in the Park’s future development.

  • What goes in my bins?

    Moorlands residents are being urged to renew their recycling efforts following a dip the district’s performance which has seen it fall from its previous record as best in the country.

    Staffordshire Moorlands District Council won a national award in 2008 following the introduction of its recycling service – and it was the first council in the country to recycle or compost over 60% of the district’s total annual waste.

    While still good, performance has dipped since then resulting in increased disposal costs of thousands of pounds every week.

    This unique initiative, which is now in its third year, catches the imagination of thousands of participants from all walks of life, inspiring them to join with others to celebrate the day at 10am on Monday 14 March.

  • We’ve got designs on high standards

    The Staffordshire Moorlands is noted for its special nature and unique characteristics - and new planning guidelines have been produced to help ensure it stays that way.

    The Staffordshire Moorlands Design Guide, produced by the District Council, is aimed at helping applicants, agents and residents with development projects to raise design standards.

  • Join our conservation conversation

    If you relish Rudyard or are obsessed with Oakamoor then the Council wants to hear from you about its plans to preserve the character of these special Moorlands villages.

    The principle of designating both villages as conservation areas was established with the publication of the Churnet Valley Masterplan in 2014 and Staffordshire Moorlands District Council is now looking to secure special protection for the rich legacy left by their historical development.

  • Don’t miss your chance to vote – register now

    With EU reforms high on the national agenda, Moorlands residents are being reminded that they need to be registered if they want to have their say in the forthcoming referendum.

    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.
