Local development framework

Our district faces many future challenges including:

  • providing new housing and jobs
  • creating new infrastructure and facilities

The planning system has a key role in helping to manage these changes. The local development framework (LDF) sets out how we’re working to tackle these issues by bringing together a folder of documents setting out our planning policy.  It is made up of:

Timetable for review of the plan

We carried out a public consultation during the summer 2021 on our Allocations and Development Management Options Report. This consultation and the work that has been completed so far can be found on the plan review section of our website.

The current timetable and process for the review of the remaining parts of the LDF is set out within our local development scheme (PDF File, 703kb)
