Local Development Scheme (LDS)

The Local Development Scheme (LDS) sets out the timetable the Council will follow in the preparation and adoption of planning policy documents. The Council is required to keep the LDS up to date.

The Local Development Scheme (June 2017) was approved at the Council meeting on 21 June 2017.

The Council is producing a Gypsy and Traveller DPD to meet the levels of need in the Borough and preparations are being made to commence work on the Next Local Plan DPD. The timetable for the production of the Gypsy and Traveller DPD and the Local Plan DPD is set out in Appendix 1 of the LDS.
