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 was approved at the Council meeting on 29 January 2020. A copy is currently accessible as part of the Cabinet agenda of 15 January 2020, with the LDS itself here. The final version of the Local Development Scheme will be made available on this page as soon as possible.

The Council has commenced the preparation of the next Borough Local Plan. A profile of this document and the timetable for its production is provided within Appendix 1 of the LDS.
