Authorities Monitoring Report

Formerly known as the the Annual Monitoring Report.

We are no longer required submit an Annual Monitoring Report to the Secretary of State.

The Localism Act (and Town and Country Planning Regulations2012) removed this requirement.

Under the act, we are required to monitor the effects of our land-use policies and the progress of our local plan.

We do this using Authorities Monitoring Reports (AMR).

You can view our report in a series of factsheets, which were most recently updated for the 2014/15 period.

You can view older AMR's below.
