Local Plan review timetable

Following advice given to the Council as part of a Local Plan health check, the anticipated timetable for our Local Plan review have been updated and are set out below giving the key dates and consultation periods. This timetable is dependent on third parties and is therefore subject to change.

The formal Local Plan timetable is set out in the Local Development Scheme. This document sets out the production timetable for the planning documents we will be publishing over the next two years. It is reviewed on a regular basis to take account of changes to our anticipated Local Plan preparation timetable.

For a more detailed explanation of each stage of the Local Plan, or how we consult please visit our What is a Local Plan? page and our Statement of Community Involvement documents.
