This document sets out the programme for preparing and adopting the planning documents which form the Local Plan.

The LDS identifies when different development plan documents will be produced and, when applicable, will also identify when supplementary planning documents (SPDs) are to be produced to support the adopted Local Plan.

The Local Development Scheme (LDS) for North Norfolk took effect from 3 August 2015 until further notice, following agreement by the Council’s Cabinet.

Timeline Review

A review of Local Plan progress took place in March 2018 and a new Local Plan production timetable was published. This represented the situation as of March 2018 and replaced the Local Development Scheme timetable. The Local Plan project is currently running behind schedule and a revised timetable will be prepared following the First Draft Local Plan consultation in May / June 2019.
