Authority Monitoring Report (AMR)
Local Planning Authorities are required, under Section 113 of the Localism Act 2011, to produce an annual AMR. The AMR monitors:
- Implementation of the Local Development Scheme.
- The progress and effectiveness of the council's Local Plan (adopted in May 2016).
- The extent to which the planning policies set out in the borough’s Local Plan are being achieved.
It also includes a five year housing land supply position statement.
Current status of the AMR
The 2021 AMR for the period 1 April 2020 to 31 March 2021 is available to download below. It was published in December 2021.
The 2021 AMR also monitors ten of the borough's made neighbourhood plans and these monitoring reports can be viewed in Appendix 5.
The AMR can also be read in conjunction with the council's Profile of the Borough. It supports the AMR in providing data on population demographics, economic and social issues and population forecasts/projections for the borough.
The AMR can also be read alongside the Borough Council’s Infrastructure Funding Statement (IFS) which details what has been received in terms of the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) and through planning obligations (S106 agreements) for each year, this is also updated annually. The IFS also details what infrastructure has been delivered as well as CIL income will be spent in the future. Read more details about the IFS.
Since the publication of the AMR in December 2021, the borough’s land supply position has been subsequently updated. The council can currently demonstrate a supply of 4.5 years (as of March 2022). View more information on the updated housing land supply position.
