Local Development Scheme

 Local Development Scheme 2018-2021

Section 15 of the Planning & Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 (as amended by Section 111 of the Localism Act) requires that local planning authorities prepare a Local Development Scheme (LDS), which sets out the Council’s programme for the preparation and adoption of Local Development Documents over a three year period.

The Local Development Scheme has been revised to take account of changes to legislation and to reflect that the Derbyshire Dales Local Plan was adopted on 7th December 2017. The revised Local Development Scheme covers the period 2018-2021 and replaces the previous version prepared in 2016.

As the Derbyshire Dales Local Plan has recently been adopted there is little evidence to suggest that an early review of the Plan will be required over the three year period of the revised Local Development Scheme. Therefore the LDS sets out that in the event that evidence demonstrates that a review of the Derbyshire Dales Local Plan is required during the period 2018-2021, the District Council will prepare a further revised Local Development Scheme.
