Authorities Monitoring Report

Plymouth Plan Part One was approved by Full Council in September 2015. The plan contains a new set of indicators and outcomes that will form a new monitoring framework called the Plymouth Plan Report. This is set to start in 2017 and will include the Authorities Monitoring Report (AMR).

As we move towards the monitoring of Plymouth Plan we have produced a shortened version of the Authorities Monitoring Report for the year 2015 to 2016, which meets the requirements of the Localism Act 2011 and reports on key development outcomes.

Please note: The housing requirement and supply pages within the Authorities Monitoring Report 2015/16 published in February 2017 contained a number of errors.  These pages have now been amended and the report updated (July 2017)

The report shows the local authority's progress of plan making in the city against the timetable for the production of planning documents set out in the latest Local Development Scheme (LDS).

Please note: The Local Development Scheme was recently reviewed in September 2015 and sets out a three year rolling timetable from 2015 to 2018.

The report also contains data which helps us to understand the economic, social and environmental conditions in the city and the extent to which the adopted Core Strategy is helping to improve this. The Core Strategy is currently under review and we're preparing a new style Local Plan called the Plymouth Plan. This will eventually replace the Local Development Framework.

The Authorities Monitoring Report also reports on:

  • Any planning policies that are not being implemented and steps being taken to ensure the policy is implemented
  • The number of dwellings completed in the authority area, including affordable dwellings
  • Progress on neighbourhood planning, the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) and co-operation with other bodies

See the Annual Monitoring Report: Archive reports page for previous reports.

This page of the monitoring report was last updated July 2017.
