Big Local


Save area

Brereton is located in the north of Cannock Chase, to the south of Rugeley town centre and is in the ward of Brereton and Ravenhill. Made up of both urban and rural areas, it is an ex-coal mining community with a strong local identity. 

With Big Local, Brereton will have an investment of at least £1m over ten years, to make a massive and lasting positive difference. It’s not just about the money! It’s about bringing people together to build on Brereton’s community spirit, to get people to believe THEY can make a difference, for them and their families and to make Brereton an even better place to live. Local residents decide how best to use the £1m.
