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

In April 2020 the Council published a draft revised LDS. Due to the ongoing situation regarding COVID-19 the revised LDS has been endorsed by the Leader of the Council with a recommendation to Council that the revised LDS be adopted. Please note that no date has yet been set for a meeting of Council. As such, the revised LDS remains in draft.

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