Emerging Newcastle-under-Lyme local plan

Newcastle-under-Lyme issues and options consultation - CLOSED


The Newcastle-under-Lyme issues and strategic options consultation is open between Monday 1 November and 5:00 p.m. on Monday 24 January 2022. This consultation gives you the opportunity to have your say on the growth of our borough.

Issues and options is the first stage in the process of creating a new local plan.

The document sets out the main issues such as the need for housing, employment and other development as well as options such as what growth figure we should adopt and where should new development go. This is an important stage because the plan will be developed in line with both evidence and the response to this consultation.

Before any decisions are made about how much housing and employment land is required for the future and where this should be built, it is important that you have your say.
