In order to ascertain whether the Local Plan is working as intended, we monitor its policies through indicators and targets, and set them out in an Annual Monitoring Report (AMR). The AMR has a number of key functions:
If we have fallen behind the Local Plan timetable in preparing documents, or if planning policy targets are not being achieved, the AMR should explain why this has happened, and should suggest how these situations might be put right.
The 2017 AMR was published on 30 June 2017.
Please note that reports prior to 2011 will report the council's progress in preparing its Local Development Framework.
Alternatively, a paper copy of the AMR may be purchased from us for £10.
