Newcastle-under-Lyme's Local Development Framework

The Local Development Framework (LDF)

The LDF sets out the development strategy for Newcastle-under-Lyme and takes two forms; Development Plan Documents (DPDs) and Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs). DPDs are subject to more stringent procedural requirements and form part of the Development Plan. SPDs are used to amplify and add greater detail to DPDs.

The LDF has a key role in helping the coordination and delivery of strategies for the borough in order to achieve sustainable development. In particular it provides a spatial dimension to the Sustainable Community Strategy.

Our aim is to produce a  development strategy that is distinctive to Newcastle-under-Lyme and is an effective response to local issues and priorities, balances competing demands and which contributes to our corporate priorities.

Further information on documents forming part of the Local Development Framework is available from the links on the right.

Joint Local Plan

Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council and Stoke-on-Trent City Council are working in partnership to prepare a new Joint Local Plan that will guide the future development of both areas up to 2033. This will replace the existing Core Spatial Strategy and the remaining saved policies from the Newcastle-under-Lyme Local Plan 2011. The adopted Newcastle-under-Lyme and Stoke-on-Trent Core Spatial Strategy will remain part of the approved development plan for the area, as will the saved policies of the Newcastle-under-Lyme Local Plan 2011, until the new Joint Local Plan is adopted.
