The Local Development Scheme (LDS) sets out the council's programme for the production of planning policy documents that form the Winchester Local Plan. Originally produced in 2005, the LDS has been revised on a regular basis to reflect the council's evolving strategic planning programme, as well as new government legislation and regulations.  All previous versions of the LDS have now been superseded but can be viewed on the LDS Archive page below.

The latest LDS was approved by the council's Cabinet (Local Plan) Committee on 10th August 2023 and was brought into effect immediately.

The Local Plan sets out how we intend to accommodate the growth we need to plan for in the district, outside the South Downs National Park, for the period up to 2040. 

The public consultation on the Regulation 18 Local Plan has now closed. The Strategic Planning Team would like to thank everyone who took up their valuable time to submit comments to the public consultation or attend one of our drop in events. We are currently analysing the representations received and working on a number of associated work streams prior to consulting on the Regulation 19 Local Plan. More information can be found here.

More information on the consultation can be found on our Local Plan websiteHome - Winchester District Local Plan
