The latest version of the Local Development Scheme (LDS) was approved at Full Councils in April of 2024. The document can be accessed here.

The three Central Lancashire Authorities remain absolutely committed to the delivery of the new Local Plan under the existing statutory planning regime and we intend to meet the deadlines of submission of our Central Lancashire Local Plan by 30th June 2025 and adoption by 31st December 2026. The newest LDS sets out how these deadlines will be met.

We would like to thank everyone who has been involved in previous consultations and look forward to your continued engagement with the plan-making process moving forward. Proposed dates for the next consultation can be found within the new LDS.

For more information about the National Government’s proposed changes to plan-making, please see their consultation website here.
