Monitoring and Implementation

Various reports are produced to monitor the implementation of the council's Planning Policies.

(Previous versions of these reports, along with other older studies are available via Archive.)

Annual Monitoring Report

As required by legislation, the Council must publish information at least annually that shows progress with local plan preparation, reports any activity relating to the duty to cooperate, any information collected which relates to indicators in the plan, and any policies which are not being implemented. Local planning authorities can also use the Annual Monitoring Report (AMR) to provide up-to-date information on the implementation of any neighbourhood plans that have been brought into force. It can help inform if there is a need to undertake a partial or full update of the local plan, when carrying out a review at least every 5 years from the adoption date.

The first AMR since the Council adopted the Local Plan is now available to view below:
