Local Plan review timetable
October 2023 - Local Plan Review Update: The Local Development Scheme 2023-2026 was agreed by Cabinet on 28 September 2023.
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 three years. It is reviewed on a regular basis to take account of changes to our anticipated Local Plan preparation timetable.
The preparation of a Regulation 19 document has taken longer than expected. This was initially due to the publication of a revised National Planning Policy Framework in July 2021, and then due to the new requirement for water neutrality in September 2021.
