MAIDSTONE BOROUGH COUNCIL
18 JULY 2018
REPORT OF THE STRATEGIC PLANNING, SUSTAINABILITY AND TRANSPORTATION COMMITTEE TO BE HELD ON 10 JULY 2018
LOCAL DEVELOPMENT SCHEME
Issue for Decision
The Council is required under Section 15 of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 (as amended) to produce a Local Development Scheme. The Local Development Scheme is a delivery programme for the development plan documents being prepared by the Council. The draft Local Development Scheme (Appendix 2) sets out the timetable for carrying out the Local Plan Review.
The Strategic Planning, Sustainability and Transportation Committee is due to consider the Local Development Scheme at its meeting of 10 July 2018 and the Local Development Scheme requires adoption by Council. Adoption of the Local Development Scheme by Council will ensure there is a clear, publically available timetable for the preparation of the Local Plan Review from the outset.
The recommendations made by the Strategic Planning, Sustainability and Transportation Committee, if any, will be reported orally at the Council meeting.
