Monitoring

To ensure its policies are up-to-date and effective, the Council undertakes ongoing assessments and monitoring, with a particular focus on housing supply.

The Council is responsible for planning for sustainable housing and employment growth across Rother District. The overall scale and distribution of growth is set by its Local Plan Core Strategy. To ensure its policies are up-to-date and effective, the Council undertakes ongoing assessments and monitoring of them, with particular focus on housing supply.

 

Housing Land Supply Monitoring

Every 6 months Rother District Council publishes an assessment of Housing Land Supply and Housing Trajectory. This assessment identifies the supply of dwellings at sites with planning permission and Local Plan allocations and shows the extent to which existing plans fulfil the requirement to maintain a rolling five year supply of deliverable land in accordance with the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF). It will also include headline, anonymised data (i.e. location, type and/or demand) from the Self-build and Custom Housebuilding Register on an annual basis.

 

Employment Land Supply Monitoring

In contrast to the Housing Land Supply and Housing Trajectory, the assessment of Employment Land Supply is published annually. It provides information on recent completions and commitments of employment related developments. It also considers the contribution that business commitments are expected to make towards the supply of business floorspace, relative to the targets in the submitted Core Strategy.

 

Local Plan Monitoring

The Local Plan Monitoring Report (LPMR) fulfils a requirement of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 (as amended by the Localism Act 2011) and associated Regulations to produce a monitoring report, at least annually, to monitor and review planning policies within the District.

The LPMR is crucial to the successful delivery of the Council's Local Plan (2011-2028) and a systematic and dynamic monitoring system helps understand the wider social, environmental and economic issues affecting their areas and the key drivers of spatial change. The findings should feed directly into any review of policy that may be required.

It brings together monitoring information and detailed commentary on housing, employment development, transport and the environment. It also includes analysis of the production of the Local Plan against the Council's published timetable.
