Local Development Scheme (LDS)
A Local Development Scheme was agreed by Dorset Council’s Cabinet on 25 June 2019. This document sets out the timetable for the production of the Dorset Council Local Plan and other planning policy documents within the Dorset Council area.
Statement of Community Involvement
The Statement of Community Involvement sets out how and when we will consult and engage the community as part of our planning duties. Planning duties include both plan making (such as local plan production) and making decisions on planning applications.
A 6 week public consultation on the Statement of Community Involvement begins on Friday 21 June and ends on Friday 2 August 2019.
A hard copy of the document and response forms can be found at Dorset Council offices and Dorset Council libraries during normal opening hours.
