Local Development Scheme

A Local Development Scheme (LDS) is required under section 15 of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 (as amended by the Localism Act 2011).

It provides a starting point for the local community to find out what the City Council planning policies are for the district and sets out the current documents which form the Local Plan for the district. 

It also sets out a detailed programme for the preparation of Local Development Documents, and progress of Neighbourhood Plans including timetables, which tell people when the various stages in the preparation of the Local Development Documents will be carried out.
