Local Development Scheme (LDS)
What is the LDS?
The Local Development Scheme document provides a project plan identifying which local development documents will be produced, in what order and when. It outlines the details and timetable for the production of all documents that make up the Local Plan over a three-year period. The last LDS was published in September 2014 and is available to download below.
