Local Development Scheme

We are required to publish a Local Development Scheme (LDS) setting out details of the documents that make up the Local Plan and the timetable for preparing or reviewing the local plan.

The latest scheme was approved by Cabinet on Tuesday 16 June 2020 and includes the following programme for preparation on the local plan. This timetable replaces the timetable which had been approved by Cabinet in December 2019. 

The new LDS can be accessed here.
