You can register, view and make comments on the document via the consultation portal. You can also view a PDF of the document by clicking on the Local Plan Issues and Options ‘learn more’ button from the link above. The PDF is available under the supporting documents tab.

Hard copies of the document are still available to view at the Council’s offices at Castle House and at every library in the Borough. If you are unable to comment online, please send your comments to the following address: Planning Policy, Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council, Castle House, Barracks Road, Newcastle-under-Lyme ST5 1BL.

Officers are reading and processing comments once they are submitted but please note it may take time for them to be processed and appear on the portal. Provided you submit them before the deadline and they adhere to the terms and conditions they will be accepted, but we expect a high volume of submissions in the final week and some may be processed after the deadline. This is especially the case for handwritten submissions which will take longer to process.
