Local Development Scheme (LDS)

Slough Borough Council, as the local planning authority, is required to produce a timetable for the preparation of the Local Plan, which will guide development in the borough from 2013 to 2036.

The key purpose is to inform the public, stakeholders, and other interested groups of how the council is approaching spatial planning and the control of development in Slough.

The project plan sets out the following:

  • the timetable (including milestones to be met) for Local Plan Documents to be prepared, together with information relating to the purpose and status of each document
  • the resources required for producing these and any risks in meeting the timetable
  • the saved Development Plan Policies for Slough

The information is contained in a document called a Local Development Scheme (LDS). The last LDS is available to download here. It will be updated as more infomation becomes available.
