Local Development Scheme

Under the provisions of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act (2004), the Council is required to prepare and publish a timetable for the production of the Local Plan. This is known as the Local Development Scheme (LDS).

In addition to the timetable the LDS details all the documents to be produced. It also includes a glossary of the main terms and types of documents introduced by the new planning system. The latest LDS was prepared in November 2015 and is available to download below.
