The Local Development Scheme (LDS) sets out the Council’s programme for preparing its new Local Plan (2020-2040) 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.

This version of the Local Development Scheme was approved by Rother’s Cabinet on 4 March 2024.
