Action Taken Under Delegated Authority (Significant Operational Decision): Local Development Scheme January 2023 Factual Update

A key legal requirement of the Local Plan Review is that it must be prepared in accordance with an up-to-date adopted Local Development Scheme (LDS). The current LDS was adopted in December 2020 by delegated decision by the Cabinet Member for Planning and Economic Development. This LDS set the overarching timetable for the Local Plan Review.  It is published to the website:


However, this document requires some factual update and minor amendments ahead of the Local Plan being reconsidered at a meeting of the Full Council for Publication Consultation and Submission to the Secretary of State for its independent examination in order to reflect the current position:

1.      Amending the time period covered from ‘2020 – 2023’ to ‘2023 – 2025’.

2.      Updates to the timetable in order to reflect the delay in closing the Reg. 19 consultation and subsequent timetable delays due to Water Neutrality.

3.      Updates to reflect the evidence base progress.

4.      Correlating delays to the timetable of the reviews of the adopted SPDs to be progressed following the Local Plan Review.

5.      Amendment to the procedures for determining the CIL and Infrastructure related documents following the changes to the CIL Regulations.


Therefore, on 5 January 2023 the Head of Economy and Planning 5 January 2023 approved that the factual updates identified above be made to the Local Development Scheme 2023-2025 (January 2023) as the council's formal Local Development Scheme setting the programme for the delivery of the Local Plan Review and the timetable for the council's other planning documents.
