Monitoring

Progress on the implementation of the Local Plan is monitored in the Annual Monitoring Report (AMR).

Why monitor policies?

Monitoring helps to establish what is happening now, what might happen in the future and by comparing trends against existing policies and targets, sets out what needs to be done.

It helps address questions like:

  • are the policies achieving their intended objectives?
  • have policies had any unintentional consequences?
  • are the assumptions and objectives behind the policies still relevant?
  • are targets being achieved?

The monitoring period is from 1 April to 31 March each year.

Housing Land Supply

The National Planning Policy Framework sets out the requirements for us to update a 'Housing Land Supply Schedule' each year.

This measures our progress against specific objectives to provide five years worth of housing against the NPPF requirements.
