Doxey Hub - Community Consultation
The Parish Council have been approached by the owners of the building with an
opportunity to run this community building—located off Sutton Drive, in the centre of Doxey.
The Council feel this could be an excellent facility for the community with the
availability of hire for children's parties along with possibilities of hire to third
parties to provide activities for residents and a potential venue for holiday provision for children (all subject to third party availability).
The Council would like residents to comment on whether they would like the
council to run this community building. Without support from residents the council feel it will not be worth considering.
The consultation is open from 1st February—1st April

This application is for 1500 houses, roads, shops, community buildings, primary school and lots more.

We'd recommend looking at the design and access statement along with some of the plans to get a feel for this.
The development has been identified in the Stafford Borough Council Local Plan and the Masterplan for the area but you can comment and help shape the design and potentially get amended features you don't like.

Bellways Homes update - Nov 2017
The Parish Council are delighted to inform residents that the affordable homes have been returned to the proposals for the former Police HQ at Baswich - meaning that Doxey will not have to fight a further application to place the homes on Mallard Walk. Well done to everyone in Doxey who supported the campaign and wrote in to object including all of the members of DASH.
Redrow Open Space and Park
It was agreed at the December 2016 Parish Council meeting that the Parish Council will move forward to take ownership of the space excluding the culvert.
Redrow have offered to redesign the Park and this will be done via consultation in the January Parish Newsletter which is circulated to all homes.
This was completed in March 2017 and the Council have plans to make repairs and add new equipment to the park.
The park equipment is inspected weekly by a trained inspector. If you see any issues with the equipment please report this to email@example.com
