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

The Local Development Scheme (LDS) is the document that sets out the timetable, resources and monitoring arrangements for the production of the Borough of Oadby and Wigston Local Plan. The last Local Development Scheme was approved and published in Summer 2021. Consultation on the new draft Local Plan (Regulation 18a) Issues and Options document was undertaken for an eight-week period from Friday, 3 September 2021 until Friday, 29 October 2021. The comments received on this version of the draft Plan (Regulation 18a) are helping to inform the next (Regulation 18b) draft new Local Plan Preferred Options document. We are continuing to develop the evidence base that we need to get to the next stage in the process (Regulation 18b).

Please note that Oadby and Wigston Borough Council’s emerging new Local Plan timetable is under review. The draft Local Development Scheme (LDS) is currently going through the Council’s internal governance procedures and it is expected that the updated LDS will be published by the middle of December 2022.
