Adoption of Local Development Scheme for Local Plan Review pdf icon PDF 435 KB

This report responds to new national planning policy which responds to the statutory requirement to review Local Plans regularly, at least within five years of adoption. If the introduction of the standard method for establishing local housing needs has significantly changed an area’s figure or it is expected to change significantly, an earlier review is required. As the borough’s housing need figure is highly likely to significantly change as a result of the introduction of the standard methodology, it is now considered suitable to update the Plan to ensure it continues to meet local needs and also national requirements. The report includes a Local Development Scheme which sets out a timetable for the updating of the Local Plan and other key elements such as resources and potential risks.
