Local plan: supporting information

Local Development Scheme

The purpose of the Local Development Scheme is to inform you of progress of the Local Plan. Our policies set out the timetable for the production of any remaining documents that will form part of that Local Plan, over approximately a three-year period.

Each month we publish a live upadte of the LDS timetable that sets out the current and next stages of preparation of the Local Plan.
