Authority Monitoring Report

Monitoring and review are important in ensuring the effectiveness of the planning system. As a result, we produce an Authority Monitoring Report (previously known as Annual Monitoring Report) by the end of December each year, which is a statutory requirement for all Local Authorities.

We have prepared our Authorities Monitoring Report (AMR) for 2019 to 2020 which sets out to:

  • Review actual progress of local development document preparation against the timetable and milestones in the Local Development Scheme (LDS).
  • Identify whether we need to amend or replace policies.
  • Review progress against many indicators, covering the economy, environment and social issues relevant to the district, and the implications of this for the Local Development Framework.
  • Comply with Section 35 of the 2004 Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act, which emphasises the need for monitoring in the Local Development Framework.
