Local Development Scheme

Local Development Scheme

Please be aware due to new government guidelines concerning COVID-19 some of our administrative processes within the Planning department have now changed. This is to process items in a timely manner whilst our teams work remotely. For full guidance on the changes please visit our Coronavirus service disruption pages

In light of the current situation we are in the process of reviewing the LDS and the timescales set out in the LDS may be subject to change.

The council is required to publish a Local Development Scheme (LDS) which sets out the scope and project timetable for the production of all Local Plan/Development Plan documents. The LDS enables the local community to find out about planning policies for their area and sets out the timetable for the production of future Local Plan documents, giving dates for key production and public consultation stages as well as outlining the subject matter and the geographical extent.
