Lewisham Council - Local development scheme

Local development scheme

Lewisham's local development scheme or LDS is a project plan containing details on how and when we will prepare and implement the local development framework (LDF) in Lewisham.

The local development scheme sets out:

  • an outline of the LDF and the planning documents we propose to prepare
  • the timetable for the preparation of the various documents.

The current local development scheme was adopted and brought into effect on 24 June 2015.

The LDS has taken into account the Sustainability Appraisal process, to ensure that the Local Plan will be prepared in a way that will help achieve sustainable development in the borough. The Sustainability Appraisal will inform the development of the Local Plan and each of the proposals in the Local Plan will be appraised.​
