What is the Town Planning Scheme?
The Town Planning Scheme (TPS) is the statutory document that controls the use and development of land within Cambridge. The scheme is being reviewed to ensure scheme provisions and policies remain valid and useful. A staged approach to the review will allow changes to the scheme to occur over time.
The scheme review will be guided by the preparation of a Local Planning Strategy (LPS) which will set a clear picture of objectives, planning intentions and proposals of both the Council and the community.
Plans or strategies may also be prepared for specific precincts to account for local history and character and/or specific land use and planning issues. Such studies include the West Leederville Planning and Urban Design Study, the Housing Options Study and Wembley and Floreat District Centre Plans.
How to get involved
Community consultation will be a key component of the Scheme review and development of local planning strategies and will include surveys, advertising of plans and public forums for example.
The review will shape the future of your neighbourhood and all community members are encouraged to take an interest and participate in the review process.
Updates and information on future consultation opportunities will be advertised as they occur.
