Call for sites

Call for sites are invited in connection with the preparation of the draft local plan.

To ensure we take into account all potential development land we invite submissions from land owners for a wide range of potential sites and uses across both Stoke-on-Trent and Newcastle-under-Lyme.

These include:

  • housing
  • employment
  • retail
  • leisure
  • open space
  • community facilities

Potential housing sites must be capable of delivering five or more homes and potential commercial sites must be a minimum of 0.25ha (0.62 acres). 

There are no guarantees any site put forward will be allocated for development in the Joint Local Plan.

A submitted site has no formal planning status, other than its current allocation or designation, or if it already has planning permission for development.

This would only change if:

  • it was formally allocated in the Joint Local Plan as a location for some form of development
  • following the submission of a planning application it was granted planning permission before the adoption of the Joint Local Plan

A site owner or prospective developer may seek planning permission for development of a site before the Joint Local Plan land allocations are eventually decided upon, whether or not the site was submitted under the call for sites.

Sites allocated for development in the Joint Local Plan would still need planning permission.
