Consultation extension: Newcastle-under-Lyme Local Plan Issues and Strategic Options Consultation

We have corrected a drafting error to the Issues and Options Paper relating to Section 7, the Hierarchy of Centres which begins on page 30. We are extending the public consultation period accordingly. You can view the Issues and Options paper and let us know what you think.

This consultation will now close at 5pm on Monday 24 January 2022.

If you have already submitted your comments and you wish to amend them please email with your new or revised comments for question 5 and the Policy Team will add these. Once processed you will be able to view your amended comments on the consultation portal.

Consultation events

There are three further consultation events scheduled (2 face-to-face and 1 virtual) which you are able to book timed appointments for.
