Local Development Scheme

Purpose of the Local Development Scheme

Section 15 of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 (as amended by the Localism Act 2011) requires the Council to publish an up-to-date Local Development Scheme (LDS).

The Local Development Scheme (LDS) provides an overview of the development plan and supplementary planning documents that the Council intends to prepare to set out where new buildings, shops, businesses and infrastructure need to go in the District and what they should look like. The LDS explains the purpose of each and the timing of their preparation, alongside the resources required to prepare them.

Bassetlaw District Council resolved to bring the LDS for 2022-2025 into effect at the 5 May 2022 Cabinet meeting.

Working with other Local Planning Authorities

Bassetlaw District Council does not plan to produce any joint Local Development Documents with other Local Planning Authorities. However, throughout the development of the Local Plan the Council will cooperate with all relevant bodies under the Duty-to-Cooperate (including all Neighbouring Local Authorities).
