Are you a person in need of South Staffordshire accident claim advice? South Staffordshire is a local government district found within the ceremonial county of Staffordshire, in central England. The district is located to the north and west of the West Midlands county, bordering Shropshire to the west and Worcestershire to the south. South Staffordshire covers a total land area of approximately 157 square miles, which is a similar geographic area to the South Staffordshire parliamentary constituency.
Strangely enough, the district of South Staffordshire does not actually contain any settlements which are considered to be towns but does have a collection of relatively significant villages. Of these, some of the best known are the likes of Brewood, Cheslyn Hay, Great Wyrley, Kinver, Landywood and Codsall which is the location of the council headquarters.
The Creation Of The South Staffordshire District
As is the case with the vast majority of England’s local government districts, South Staffordshire was officially formed on the 1st April 1974 as a direct consequence of the passage of the 1972 Local Government Act. That piece of legislation reshaped local government all over the UK and created a raft of new districts by merging collections of former administrative entities.
In the case of South Staffordshire, the former entities which were amalgamated were the Cannock Rural District (in the north) and the Seisdon Rural District (in the south). The resulting 157 square mile local government district is largely rural in nature and includes a variety of beauty spots including the likes of Baggeridge Country Park and the Bluebell Woods in Perton.
The Population Of South Staffordshire
According to the most recently available census data, the district of South Staffordshire is home to around 108,000 permanent residents which is actually more than you may expect for a district which includes no towns.
What this surprisingly high population figure means for the district is that it is actually busier and more active than one may first expect and as such may also play host to a higher number of accidents and injuries. With that in mind, then, we will now turn our attention to the issues surrounding making an accident accident claim.
