Consultation and notification
Depending on the location and the nature of the proposed development, we may be legally required to consult certain organisations, such as:
- the Highways Authority
- English Heritage
- Environment Agency
We must take their advice into consideration when making a decision on the planning application.
In other cases, we will seek the views of
- other departments within Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council
- Staffordshire County Council
- the utility companies
- others as necessary
This is to obtain advice which will help to reach the right decision on the application. These organisations have to respond within a specified time limit, which will be at least 14 days.
