The Local Development Scheme (LDS) sets out the Council’s programme for preparing its Local Plan and related documents over a three year period, explaining their scope, area and timetable.

Its primary purpose is to provide a publicly accessible reference, so that the Council’s current policy framework, its programme for further plan-making and the opportunities for contributing to these are clear to local communities and interested parties.

In April 2022, the Council published a position statement on the Emerging Local Plan (2019-2039) page advising of a change to the new Local Plan timetable. The LDS will be updated to reflect this in due course.
