The Local Development Scheme (LDS) sets out the timetable for the production of planning policy documents.



A Local Development Scheme will set out the Local, Minerals and Waste Plans which will make up the development plan for Somerset. 

We currently have Local Development Schemes for each of the former district areas and county. We aim to replace all of these with a new single Local Development Scheme for Somerset to cover both a new Somerset Local Plan and Minerals and Waste Plans.
