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 28 June 2017. On 27 June 2018, the Council approved an update to the timetable for preparing planning policy documents; this is shown in Appendix 1 of the Local Development Scheme (page 11). The remainder of the document remains as approved in June 2017.

The Council has commenced the preparation of the next Borough Local Plan. A Gypsy and Traveller Development Plan Document is also being prepared. A profile of these documents and the timetable for their production is provided within Appendix 1 of the LDS.
