- the determination of planning applications.
March 2021: Consultation on the Statement of Community Involvement
In March 2021 Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council published the draft of the revised Statement of Community Involvement (SCI). It will replace the SCI draft published in 2020 for the joint Local Plan between Newcastle-under-Lyme and Stoke-on-Trent.
It was necessary to produce the new SCI as a result of Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council and Stoke-on-Trent City Council deciding to produce new Local Plans independent of each other.
The Draft SCI was subject to consultation between 19 April to 31 May 2021. Representations can be viewed here:
The draft of the updated SCI can be downloaded below.
It is anticipated the draft SCI will be on the agenda for Cabinet in July.
