The Local Development Scheme (LDS) is the project management document for an authority's Development Plan, setting out the range of documents that will be prepared and the timescales for their production.

The 2017 version of the LDS takes effect from 2 March 2017, superseding the previous LDS from 2014 and is available below. This follows adoption of the new Torbay Local Plan 2012-2030 'A landscape for success'

This LDS also includes, for information purposes, details of how and when Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs), alongside other related documents will be produced. Those documents include the Authority Monitoring Report, the three Neighbourhood Plans (for Torquay, Paignton and the Brixham Peninsula) and the Community Infrastructure Levy Charging Schedule.
