The entirety of Keele Parish as been designated the Neighbourhood Plan area. The Keele Neighbourhood Plan is the responsibility of Keele Parish Council but is led by the Keele Neighbourhood Plan Group. This group consists of volunteers from the community and a representative of Keele University. The group is currently chaired by Graham Bibby who is a Parish Councillor but could be chaired by any volunteer. The group meets on a roughly monthly basis and is assisted in its work by a Neighbourhood Plan consultant: Mr John Knight. The group is open to new recruits and for members of the community to attend its meetings.
The Group works with a variety of stakeholders inside and outside the parish including residents, businesses, the Newcastle Borough Council and neighbouring parishes and plans amongst others.
