Local development scheme

Information about the timetable for preparing the Lewisham Local Plan.
Planning service charges

Planning services have introduced new charges for withdrawing planning applications that have not been validated. These charges are to recover administrative costs. The charge for Non-Major applications is £41.67 (£50 including VAT) and for Major applications, it is £125 (£150 including VAT).

The Local Development Scheme (LDS) sets out:

  • an outline of the Local Plan and the planning documents we propose to prepare

  • the timetable for the preparation of the various documents.

The current Local Development Scheme was approved by a decision of Mayor and Cabinet on 7 December 2022 and came into force on 17 December 2022. It replaces the LDS 2020.

The old LDS 2020 can be read below.
