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 2019/20 accompanies the Local Development Plan which was adopted in December 2016. The main focus of our work at the moment is on delivering the Local Development Plan and using the Action Programme as a tool to help achieve this.
Based on the current progression of the Planning Bill through Parliament, we have revised our timescales to prepare a new Local Development Plan to closely align our processes with the new anticipated planning legislation and subsequent guidance. Further detail on the various stages involved in preparing a new Local Development Plan and indicative timeline are identified in the Development Plan Scheme, which we will update annually.
