Local development scheme (LDS)
Prepared by Local Planning Authorities the Local Development Scheme (LDS) identifies the timetable for the preparation of Development Plan Documents (DPDs) which together constitute the 'Local Plan' for the area, as required by the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004, as amended. For Tewkesbury Borough Council this includes the Joint Core Strategy (JCS) and the Tewkesbury Borough Plan (TBP).
Joint Core Strategy (JCS) 2011 to 2031
The JCS is a partnership between Gloucester City Council, Cheltenham Borough Council and Tewkesbury Borough Council.
