We monitor a number of different indicators and targets across the district to aid with future planning decisions and identification of local priorities.
This information provides a useful evidence base on which to review policies based on their level of success.
Annual Monitoring Report
The Annual Monitoring Report (AMR) reports on a number of things, including:
- contextual and core output indicators - including business development, housing, transport, local services, flood protection, biodiversity, renewable energy and gypsies and travellers
- the performance of policies in the adopted Local Plan
- whether we are still on track with regard to the Local Development Scheme and
- deficiencies in the scope of current monitoring and how it will be improved in the future.
The AMR is produced by the Strategic Planning Team. Our most recent AMRs can be found below. The AMRs that have been produced since the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 are available on request.
Housing Delivery Test Action Plan
The Housing Delivery Test (HDT) is a requirement of national policy. The Action Plan details the steps being taken to improve housing delivery in the District. The first HDT results were published in February 2019. The latest results were published in January 2022.
The Council’s HDT Action Plans are available below. The latest Action Plan was approved by the Council’s Cabinet in June 2020. The Council has recalculated its HDT result following adoption of the New Local Plan and is not required to take any action.
