Development Plan monitoring

Why do we need to monitor?

It is essential that we keep an eye on what is happening within the borough to assess whether our current policies are working and what we have to do in the future. Currently we monitor various changes relevant to planning and prepare reports looking at housing developments and employment land.

The monitoring data provides an important tool in planning for Tamworth's future and feeds into sub-regional monitoring reports.
