We are required to prepare and publish a Local Development Scheme (LDS). The LDS is essentially a 'project plan' for the various planning policy documents that the council intends to prepare. The most recent LDS approved by the council is the 2012 LDS.
The council will monitor the Local Plan against the timetable (below) for its preparation and consultation, and report progress in the Annual Monitoring Report.
