Decision details

Local Development Scheme

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Climate Change & Environment

Decision status: For Determination

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


The council's current Local Development Scheme was approved in January 2024.  It set out that consultation would be undertaken on a draft of the Stockport Local Plan in July and August 2024.


As a consequence of the announcement that a general election will be held on 4 July 2024, and seeking to avoid making a decision which is controversial in the context of the election, there has been a delay to the decision making process required to enable the July/August consultation to commence.  The council subsequently needs to update the LDS to reflect the rescheduled consultation period.  It is now proposed that consultation will be undertaken on a draft of the Stockport Local Plan from the start of September until mid-October.


The Cabinet Member for Climate Change & Environment has therefore given approval the July 2024 update of the Stockport Local Development Scheme (LDS) set out in Appendix A to this report.
