What is the Local Development Scheme?

The Local Development Scheme is a public statement that sets out the Councils proposals for the preparation of its Local Plan and other Local Development Documents.

The Local Development Scheme tells you:

  • the documents that make up the development plan in the Borough,

  • where to find planning policies and other information for the Borough, and

  • the timescales for the production of the Local Plan and other Local Development Document.

Updates to the most recent Local Development Scheme

On the 16th April 2019, the Council adopted the following documents that relate to the Local Development Scheme 2018:

  • The Borough of Oadby and Wigston Local Plan,
  • The Adopted Policies Map,
  • The Residential Development Supplementary Planning Document
  • The Conservation Areas Supplementary Planning Document, and
  • The Developer Contributions Supplementary Planning Document.

The Council is currently in the process of producing the Employment Land Supplementary Planning Document, the Public Realm Supplementary Planning Document, the Playing Pitch Strategy and the Town and District Centre Guidance.

It is proposed that a revised Local Development Scheme will be produced during the summer of 2020, once the Council has been able to effectively assess how the new Local Plan is performing against its monitoring framework. It is proposed that the revised Local Development Scheme will have a timetable for the production of a revised Local Plan.

The Council is hoping to undertake a Call for Sites process in the coming months. The Council was intending to begin the Call for Sites process in May however this will more than likely be delayed due to the current Covid-19 pandemic. The Council will update this page, as and when further information is available.

Further information on the Council's Local Plan can be found on the Council's dedicated new Local Plan webpage.
