Consultation and notification

Consultation partners

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.
