The Local Development Scheme (LDS) is the ninth LDS document we've produced.
It was approved by the Council’s Cabinet at their meeting on the 13th September 2021 and came into effect on 21st September 2021.
The LDS describes what we're going to do to prepare new and revised planning policies as part of Warrington’s Local Planning Framework. Preparation and review of the LDS is a mandatory requirement under the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 as amended by the Localism Act 2011.
The updated LDS sets out a detailed programme for the review of the Local Plan in order to accommodate the new homes and jobs required to meet Warrington’s development needs over the period to 2038.
