This study, carried out between 1988 and 1990, was commissioned by the Department of the Environment (DOE) and funded jointly by the Department and the British Geological Survey (BGS). Its main aim was to make a synthesis of geological data relevant to planning of land-use and development in the Stoke-on-Trent area. This report is specifically written for planners and there has been an attempt to avoid complex geological terms. Besides text illustrations the report includes ten thematic maps at a common scale of 1 :25 000. An additional volume concentrates on engineering geology for site investigation companies. Seven further short reports feature geological details of separate 1: 10 000 sheets, couched in more technical language.
