Please Note : This document has now been revoked and is no longer in use

The Aston Local Plan addresses a range of planning and transportation issues in north Aston and Witton, including the impact of Aston Villa Football Club on the nearby area. Amongst other things, the Plan provides the context for any future development of the Aston Villa Football Club ground.

Although much of the Plan addresses planning and transportation issues, it also aims to

  • ensure Villa Park, Aston Parish Church and Aston Hall continue to co-exist and accommodate the needs of both residents, tourists and football supporters
  • protect and enhance the historic buildings in the area
  • attract new investment to the area
  • improve community facilities and
  • tackle training and employment problems

Since the plan was approved in 1998, planning permissions have been granted for Aston Villa Football Club to expand the stadium capacity. These permissions were supported by legal agreements to improve environmental, recreational and transportation measures in the area.

Please note that a new planning policy document, theAston, Newtown and Lozells Area Action Plan, has now been adopted, and replaces the Aston Local Plan.

The Aston Local Plan is available below.
