View the current Local Development Scheme (LDS) - March 2017 Document (PDF)


The Joint Babergh and Mid Suffolk Local Development Scheme (LDS) sets out the programme and timetable for the the various documents that will make up the new Joint Local Plan. The LDS was approved by Babergh Strategy Committee on 2 March 2017, and Mid Suffolk Executive Committee on 6 March 2017.


Progress against the milestones and timescales set out in this LDS will be assessed and set out each year in the two Councils’ combined Annual Monitoring Report (produced to cover the period from start April – end March and now completed and published in May/June each year).
