Economic development strategy 2019 to 2023


Welcome to the Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council Economic Development Strategy – Growing our People and Places 2019 – 2023

Our strategy sets out the Council’s aspirations and priorities for the next four years and focuses on Place and Infrastructure, Business Environment and People and Ideas.

In 2023 we will be celebrating our 850th anniversary of the Borough Charter. Between now and then we will be working with our partners to develop a programme of events and activities to mark this significant year.

The strategy is aligned to our Council Plan priorities specifically the priorities of Growing our People and Places and A Town Centre for All.

The Council is committed to strong and sustainable economic growth for the borough, focusing on opportunities around Keele University, Newcastle Town Centre and Kidsgrove.

To deliver the strategy we will engage with our partners, locally and regionally and work with them to develop their plans and encourage inward investment for the benefit of our communities.
