1. Local development scheme
The Local Development Scheme (LDS) specifies the documents that will form the Local Plan and sets out the timetable for their preparation.
A new LDS is now available:
Greater Exeter Strategic Plan (GESP)
Following the Local Authority Elections in May 2019, discussions have been held and the four GESP Councils have informally agreed on a new timetable for the Greater Exeter Strategic Plan. The proposed revised timetable is:
- Site Options and Draft Policies – June 2020
- Draft Plan – November 2020
- Publication (Proposed Submission) – February 2022
- Submission – July 2022
- Examination – September 2022
- Adoption – April 2023
Our Local Development Scheme will be updated as soon as possible to reflect this proposed new timetable.
