Annual monitoring report
The Localism Act (and Town and Country Planning Regulation 2012) removes the requirement for local planning authorities to produce an Annual Monitoring Report (AMR) for Government. However, the Act retains the overall duty to monitor the implementation of the Local Development Scheme and the extent to which the policies set out in the Local Development Documents are being achieved. For this resaon the Council will continue an AMR at least annually. The Localism Act gives more flexibility as to when and how often an AMR is prepared. The Council will now be able to choose which targets and indicators to include in the report.
A 5 -Year Housing Supply Paper has been produced which covers the period 2012/2013 to 2018/19.
