The Local Development Scheme (LDS) sets out the Council’s continuing programme for preparing the Local Development Plan and other key documents.

Whilst we consider the impacts of the recently issued Nutrient Neutrality guidance, the Local Plan preparation timeline is under review. The expected submission date of the Plan for examination is uncertain. However, it is unlikely to be before October 2022. We will provide further updates when available.

The latest version of the LDS was prepared in May 2020 and is available to view below.
