Local development scheme

The Sandwell Local Development Scheme (LDS) is part of the Sandwell Local Plan.

The Local Plan is a portfolio of town planning documents for the Borough.

The documents include development plan documents (DPDs) that are part of the statutory development plan and supplementary planning documents that expand on policies set out in a DPD or provide additional detail, as well as a Statement of Community Involvement and an Annual Monitoring Report.

The Sandwell LDS, which was approved by Cabinet on 27th September 2021,  is the Council's programme for the production of Sandwell's Development Plan Documents. This includes a list of existing documents and sets out further details including a schedule that maps out the time period for the production of additional programme documents.
