Local Plan Monitoring Report

What is a Local Plan Monitoring Report?

The Rother District 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.

The LPMR is crucial to the successful delivery of the Council's Local Plan (2011-2028). Also, 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.

2016/17 Local Plan Monitoring Report

The LPMR 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.

The 2016/17 LPMR is available to download.
