Local Development Scheme

A revised Local Development Scheme (LDS) was approved by Cabinet on 10th May 2018.

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), and since our last Local Development Scheme was approved, there have been a number of factors which have delayed plan production.  These include the fact that a great many sites were submitted through the Housing and Employment Land Availability Assessment ‘call for sites’ and these are being carefully assessed as well as  further draft changes to national Government planning policy and a wish to investigate differing ways to ensure we can secure the best forms of development, including the highest quality new housing with supporting facilities, to meet our future needs.  Accordingly, it is now likely that the Draft GESP will be published in the summer of 2019.
