Local Development Scheme

As a part of the preparation of Development Plan Documents for the District the Council is required to publish a Local Development Scheme (LDS). This is a work programme which sets out the Council's planning policy document priorities. To this end the LDS serves two key purposes:

  • to inform the public about the preparation of planning documents, their subject and geographical area, and
  • to provide the programme for the preparation of new local plan/development plan documents (DPDs), setting out a timetable for the various stages in the preparation of each document.

Current LDS timetable

The current revision to the Local Development Scheme - December 2016 was approved by the Council on 12 December 2016 and covers the following development plan and supplementary planning documents (SPDs) up to 2018:

  • Site Allocations DPD for housing and employment delivery
  • Gypsy and Traveller Local Plan
  • Development Requirements SPD
  • Canal Quarter Regeneration Zone Framework Masterplan SPD
  • Long Marston Airfield Framework Masterplan SPD

Progress against this LDS will be detailed in the Authority Monitoring Report for 2017.
