Local Development Scheme

A revised Local Development Scheme (LDS) was approved by Cabinet on 21 November 2019.

The new LDS sets in place an updated timescale for the review of the Core Strategy and the Allocations and Infrastructure Development Plan Document (AIDPD, to form one overall Local Plan).

In respect of the Greater Exeter Strategic Plan (GESP), the revised LDS makes clear that the Plan will:

  • Set an overall vision and strategy for the development of the area in the context of national and other high level policy
  • Include overarching, cross-boundary and strategic targets, policies and proposals for development and conservation;
  • Guide the overall level and distribution of development;
  • Make strategic development and infrastructure proposals;
  • Contain other strategic policies necessary to implement the vision and strategy; and
  • Cover the period 2020 – 2040.

A site options and Draft Policies consultation is expected to take place in June 2020.

The revised Local Development Scheme also sets out a timetable for the production of a new Local Plan for Mid Devon following the adoption of the Local Plan Review 2013 - 2033.
