Local Development Scheme

What is the Local Development Scheme?

Local planning authorities are required by law to publish a Local Development Scheme (LDS). This is a work programme that sets out our priorities in developing planning policy documents. It serves two key purposes:

  • To inform the public about the preparation of planning documents, their topic and the geographical area that they affect
  • To set out a timetable for the various stages in the preparation of each document

Latest LDS timetable

The publication of the new Local Development Scheme, previously expected in December, has been delayed. A revised date for publication has yet to be confirmed.

The latest version of the LDS was adopted by the Council on 13 July 2020.

The previous Local Development Scheme (December 2018) is also available to view for reference.
