Local Development Scheme (LDS)

The Local Development Scheme (LDS) sets out our timetable for the preparation of a new Local Plan and associated local planning policy documents. There are a number of stages involved and we expect the process to take about four years. The LDS also allows us to monitor progress with the review and the preparation of the Local Plan as we move through the process.  Progress will be reported each year through our Annual Monitoring Report.
