The County Council is committed to demonstrating progress with Plan delivery.
As part of the monitoring framework the Council will prepare and publish an Annual Monitoring Report (AMR) with appropriate stakeholder involvement. The AMR is the main mechanism for assessing the relevance and success of this Plan and identifying any necessary actions. It is intended to improve the transparency of the planning process and to inform elected members, the community, business and environmental organisations of Development Plan issues facing the area. Through the AMR the Council will report on the Plan context and the data collected as part of the monitoring and evaluate the effectiveness of the Plan.
The Local Development Plan Annual Monitoring Reports are available here:
Some elements of the Plan are monitored through regular survey work, examples being housing and employment development and changes to town centre areas, as shown below:
