On 13 January 2021 we resolved to undertake a new local plan for the borough of Newcastle-under-Lyme.

Following consultation on issues and strategic options in 2021/22, we consulted on the first draft of our local plan between 19 June and 14 August 2023). The consultation is now closed. Responses received will be processed and published on our consultation portal in due course.

To assist with the interpretation of the proposals in the first draft local plan, an interactive version was prepared:
