Annual Monitoring Report

 

What is the Annual Monitoring Report?

The Annual Monitoring Report (AMR) is a document which is produced by us annually, looking back at the previous financial year from 1 April to 31 March.

The AMR measures various indicators to assess the performance of the individual planning policies set out in the adopted development plan but also to provide a general portrait of the social, economic and environmental conditions in the district and the wider affects of the LDF on the district. The different indicators used in the AMR can be grouped into three categories:

  • Contextual indicators are those that together provide a general portrait of the social, economic and environmental conditions in the district against which planning policies operate.
  • Output indicators include both core output indicators and local output indicators, and provide detailed analysis on how we have adopted planning policies have performed. Core output indicators are set by central government and local output indicators are set by us.
  • Significant effect indicators are those indicators based on the objectives set out in the Council's Sustainability Appraisal reports, and look at the wider effects of the LDF on the district.

The AMR also assesses the Council's progress in producing its Local Development Framework documents against the timetable set out in the Local Development Scheme.
