Local Development Scheme

You might be interested in reading the Local Development Scheme if you want to know what planning documents are in production and when you'll be able to have your say on them at consultation.

The Local Development Scheme sets out the timetable and steps to adopt the Local Plan documents.

The latest version of our Local Development Scheme was approved in August 2021.

Why we have a Local Development Scheme

We've created a Local Development Scheme for 2 main reasons:

  • To keep you informed about the preparation of the Local Plan, its topic and the areas they'll affect.
  • To set a timetable for the various stages in the preparation of each document.
We're also required to have a Local Development Scheme by law as part of the Planning Compulsory Purchase Act 2004.
