Kinver Rock housesThe natural environment of the District is highly valued as a recreational resource by local residents and is also an important part of South Staffordshire’s tourism. The countryside provides for a wide range of quiet leisure and recreational activities and important areas include Kinver Edge, Highgate Common, and Shoal Hill Common.
 
Baggeridge Country Park, and the South Staffordshire Railway Walk are also managed by the Council and provide excellent informal recreation opportunities for residents and attract visitors from further afield.
 
There are other small commons and heathlands in the District that have potential for informal recreation. The use of these commons for informal recreation would be welcomed and opportunities to improve the management and use of land for public access will be encouraged by the Council, subject to the necessary safeguards for agriculture, nature conservation and the rights of commoners.
 
The Council will provide advice on the management and use of common land and prepare management plans where appropriate.
 
The Council encourages the improvement of existing tourism facilities and the development of new attractions in the District provided that the proposals respect the scale, nature and character of their surroundings and do not conflict with other policies in the Local Plan. Proposals related to the rural, industrial, cultural, historic, architectural and wildlife heritage of the District will be encouraged.
 

For further information on local attractions please contact the Tourism and Economic Development Officer.
