Consall Hall Gardens.

Consall Hall Gardens.

These are located in the North Staffordshire Green Belt. In Staffordshire Moorlands Local Plan the area is designated a ‘Special Landscape Area’ and [in part] a Site of Biological Interest.
The Accessibility and Connectivity Study [2011] identifies a number of constraints on the further expansion of this site. These are;

 the need to control public access for management reasons
 access can only be by cars. PSV access is non-existent and unsuitable
 access to Consall Hall is poor

It is submitted that further development of Consall Hall Gardens is constrained by its very isolated location, it’s very restricted access and the fact that it lies within the Green Belt. The designation of a Site of Special Landscape and it being, at least in part, a Site of Biological Interest further hampers development. There is however clearly an opportunity to expand its access and usage by walkers, cyclists and horse riders without damaging this attractive facility.
