Revisions to the Local Development Scheme (LDS - Local Plan work programme

Every local planning authority has to “prepare and maintain” a work programme for its Local Plan-related work, known as the Local Development Scheme (LDS). This is a requirement under the Planning & Compulsory Purchase Act 2004.


The current LDS was agreed by Cabinet on 17 December 2020, following the review of the adopted Plan.
