Local Development Scheme Policy

The main purpose of the Local Development Scheme (LDS) is to set out the existing development plan position for the area and the timetable for other documents it is preparing. It explains the:

  • statutory planning documents (called development plan documents) that the Council intends to prepare or review
  • subject matter and geographical area that these documents will cover
  • anticipated timetable for the preparation of each document

The LDS also provides information on the other non-statutory planning documents the Council intends to prepare.
