Authority Monitoring Report (AMR)

The Authority Monitoring Report (AMR) covers a wide range of issues from housing and employment to the Green Belt and transport. It monitors the implementation of the Council's planning policies in its Local Plan.

The AMR also monitors the production of the District Plan against the timetable set out in the Local Development Scheme and sets out the Council's 15 year housing trajectory and 5 year housing land supply calculation.  Please  click  the  below  links to access the current and previous years AMR's

Housing Delivery Test

The Housing Delivery Test (HDT) was introduced by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) in 2018 to ensure that local authorities and other stakeholders are held accountable for their role in ensuring new homes are delivered.

The HDT assesses the number of homes built in local authority areas over the previous three years and compares these against local housing requirements. 

Local Planning Authorities that fail to meet delivery targets are required to take appropriate action to address under delivery. As a consequence of the HDT result, the council is required to prepare a housing action plan and to add a 20% buffer to the five year housing land supply calculation.

The council's HDT Action Plan covers the February 2019 HDT results and can be downloaded below
