The planning service delivers the spatial objectives for the city through planning policy and the development management process.
Monitoring of development is an effective way to gather evidence for future policy formulation as well as comparing against other years to understand trends in development and build-out rates.
The annual monitoring report 2017 covers the period April 1, 2016 to March 31, 2017 and provides an overview of performance in terms of:
- contextual measures – a review of a number of key economic, social and environmental indicators for the city
- development outputs - provides a summary of the progress in the building out of sites and development which have been given planning permission for housing; employment; retail and leisure uses
- Local Plan preparation and timetable - outlines progress in the preparation of the Newcastle-under-Lyme and Stoke-on-Trent Joint Local Plan and other supporting planning policy documents
