Local Development Scheme

The Local Plan consists of a series of documents which set out the spatial vision for Croydon, the strategy for delivery of this vision and detailed policies and guidance for managing development in the borough and development sites where change is anticipated. The description of these documents and their current stage in the Local Plan process can be found in the updated Local Development Scheme (LDS). The timetable is summarised in a gantt chart on page 8 of the LDS, however key milestones are as listed below:

  • Proposed submission consultation – Autumn/Winter 2021
  • Submission of Plan to Secretary of State early 2022
  • Local Plan examination anticipated during the Summer 2022 (subject to availability of Inspectors)
  • Local Plan adoption anticipated early 2023.
