Open Space and Green Infrastructure Strategies

The Open Space Strategy is a review and future guide to how the Borough Council manages its open space to ensure that the needs of the community are being met in the most appropriate way. 

The strategy also addresses how land outside of the council’s ownership is provided and maintained, with the intention that it is managed in a complementary way with municipal land. 

Produced in parallel with the Open Space Strategy is a Newcastle under Lyme Green Infrastructure Strategy which considers open space at a ‘landscape scale’.

Current status

The Council formally adopted the strategies in March 2017. Please follow the links below to view the documents.
