Local Development Scheme (LDS)

The Local Development Scheme (LDS) was brought into effect at Cabinet on 13 February 2024.

It explains when documents will be produced and when local communities and other key stakeholders can expect to get involved in the plan-making process. It also gives a timetable for producing the planning documents that will make up the Local Plan and related documents.

It also provides an update to the previous LDS which was published in November 2022.
