Local Development Scheme

The Local Development Scheme (LDS) serves two key roles:-
It provides a starting point for the local community to find out what Leeds City Council's planning policies are for the district and sets out the current documents which form the Development Plan.

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