Dudley Council's Local Development Scheme (LDS)

The Local Development Scheme (LDS) is our three-year project plan that identifies which local plan documents will be produced by the Planning Policy team, in what order and by when.

We need to review our planning documents at regular intervals to assess whether some or all of them need updating. The LDS therefore also provides information on the timetabling of a number of existing approved planning documents which need to be reviewed. The LDS also lists those planning policy documents which have already been adopted and are used as current working documents.

The LDS provides:–

  • brief summaries of the content of individual planning policy documents;
  • timescales for their progression;
  • information showing at what stage they are currently at, and
  • their anticipated date of adoption.

We aim to update the LDS annually. The tables within it, detailing the progression of the planning policy documents, will be updated on a monthly basis.  A copy of the most recent LDS can be found below.
