Christchurch and East Dorset Joint Local Development Scheme

The Local Development Scheme (LDS) sets out the guidance and timescale within which the Local Plan will be produced.

The Joint Local Development Scheme Version 3 gained approval from Christchurch Policy and Resources Committee on 20 June 2018 and the East Dorset Cabinet on the 19 June 2018. 

The principal purposes of the Local Development Scheme are:

  • to provide a programme for the preparation of the Local Plan (formally the Local Development Framework) over a three year period
  • to provide the local community, and those interested in planning in Christchurch and East Dorset, with a starting point as to what policies apply and when the various stages of the Local Plan will be carried out
