A local development scheme is a document which contains a local authority’s proposed timetable for producing its local plan. The local development scheme is an important document that allows local planning authorities to keep communities informed of their progress in plan making.
As detailed in our Local Development Scheme (PDF 782.6KB) updated in March 2018 and the updated timetable (link opens in new window), we submitted our Local Plan to the Secretary of State on Monday 30 April, 2018, after it was authorised by our Full Council on 26 April.
This fulfils our statutory obligations. Next, a planning inspector will review our submission documents and set a timetable for our Local Plan to be heard at a public examination.
