The Development Plan Scheme (DPS) sets out the programme for preparing and reviewing our Local Development Plan, and explains what is likely to be involved at each stage.
The DPS for 2017/18 has been revised to accompany the recently adopted Local Development Plan (December 2016). The main focus of our work at the moment is on delivering the recently adopted Local Development Plan and using the Action Programme as a tool to help achieve this.
The various stages involved in preparing a Local Development Plan are identified below and described in more detail in the DPS.
We have a statutory duty to update our Local Development Plan every 5 years. We also will update the Development Plan Scheme annually.
