Local Development Scheme
The Local Development Scheme (LDS) sets out the programme for producing a new Mole Valley Local Plan (Future Mole Valley). It includes a timetable for the key stages (including consultation periods) over the period 2017 - 2019.
The latest LDS was approved on 28 November 2017 (see 'Downloads'). This Local Development Scheme supersedes all previous versions.
Additional details about Future Mole Valley can be found at futuremolevalley.org
Mole Valley started charging the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) on 1 January 2017. To support the new Local Plan, the CIL is likely to be reviewed. Therefore, details of the programmes for both the 2016 version and its review are included in the Local Development Scheme for information.
In March 2016, a national Local Plans Expert Group published its report to the Communities Secretary and to the Minister of Housing and Planning with recommendations about how local plan making can be made more efficient and effective. Any changes in national guidance on Local Plan preparation, arising from those recommendations, may have implications for the process set out in this Local Development Scheme.
