Local Development Scheme

The Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004, as amended, requires local planning authorities to prepare, maintain and publish a Local Development Scheme (LDS) (pdf, 105KB). The scheme provides public information on the process and timetable for the preparation and review of local development documents and is used by the council to help plan resources and work streams.

The current Medway scheme was approved by the council’s Cabinet on 20 December 2016. This sets out a three-year programme for the production of a new local plan for Medway.

The council will report on progress on the Local Development Scheme in its annual Authority Monitoring Report.
