Local Development Scheme (LDS)

The Local Development Scheme (LDS) sets out the approach and 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 by the Council on 29 January 2020. 

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

The Council is currently in the process of reviewing its Local Development Scheme and thus will be updated in due course.
