Authority Monitoring Report

We are required to produce an Authority Monitoring Report for each preceding financial year (April – March). This report measures:

  • how well we are progressing with preparing the Local Plan against the timetable set out in the Local Development Scheme, and
  • how well the policies set out in the Local Plan are being achieved.

You can download a copy of the current Authority Monitoring Report by using the following link:

Local Plan 5 year review

National Planning Policy Framework (2019) sets out that policies within adopted local plans should be reviewed to assess whether they need updating once every five years and updated as necessary. Reviews should be completed no later than 5 years from the adoption date of a plan.

The Borough’s Local Plan Core Strategy was adopted by the Council on 30 September 2014.
