Local Development Scheme

Last updated: 23 February 2021

2. Introduction and context

This Local Development Scheme (LDS) sets out the key planning policy documents that the Council will produce over the next three years or so.

We’ve also added some background information about what goes into preparing a plan.

This LDS was approved and brought into effect by the Council on 15 December 2020. Because we expect significant reform to the plan-making process, we will keep the LDS under review so that we can respond to changes as and when they become firmer and clearer. We will report our progress against the milestones in the Authority Monitoring Report. We’ll also highlight any issues that may need us to update the LDS.
