What is the Local Development Scheme?

The Local Development Scheme explains when documents will be produced and when you can expect to get involved. It is also gives a timetable for producing the planning documents that will make up the Local Plan.

  • the planning documents that the Borough Council will prepare and the timetable for their preparation;
  • a timetable for preparing the Site Allocations and Development Management Policies and a revised Statement of Community Involvement.

Monitoring and Evaluation

Local Authorities are required to produce an Annual Monitoring Report. This is how we assess the Local Plan's performance and effects.

The latest Annual Monitoring Report is available to download here

Housing and Employment Monitoring

The Council monitors the supply of housing and employment land on an ongoing basis by evaluating the development of new sites and the supply of land with planning permission. The most recent housing data is available in the 5 year housing supply reports. Employment land data and the housing trajectory is available in the Annual Monitoring Report .
