Local Development Scheme

The Local Development Scheme (LDS) sets out the programme for producing a new Mole Valley Local Plan (Future Mole Valley).

A new LDS was adopted in November 2020, following full consideration of the responses to the recent Regulation 18 consultation to inform the plan making process the Council intends to pursue. This is available to view below (see 'Downloads').

A change to the plan period, which is now 2020-2037, was made upon adoption of an Interim LDS in July 2020. The Report to the Cabinet Meeting in which this was agreed is available to view below (see 'Downloads').

Additional details about Future Mole Valley can be found at futuremolevalley.org, including details of how to sign up for email updates about progress on the plan.

Mole Valley started charging the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) on 1 January 2017. To support the new Local Plan, the CIL is likely to be reviewed. Therefore, details of the programme for its review are included in the Local Development Scheme for information.
