Commenting on the Joint Local Plan

The consultation on the Stoke-on-Trent and Newcastle-under-Lyme Joint Local Plan Issues has been running since 15 February and is due to close on 29 March.

The Steering Group decided that it was neccesary to respond to the consultation. To say that the prospect was daunting would be a colossal understatment. We made the task a little easier by divvying the work up and each reviewing two of the eight topics.

When we had written up our comments these were circulated among the group and we then met a few days later to review the results and compile our general remarks.

Our response to the consultation was submitted electronically on 25 March and a printed copy will be hand delivered to the Civic Offices after the Easter holiday, on 29 March.

The links below will take you to our response documents.
