Local circumstances change and some planning policies may become out of date. Therefore, a review of the current Local Plan is regularly undertaken and we are currently reviewing ours. The review looks at future development across the district and requires public consultation.

Local Development Scheme
Local planning authorities must set out a timetable for their review in a document called the Local Development Scheme (LDS). The LDS also specifies what documents, when prepared, will comprise the Local Plan for the area.
