Monitoring and Five-year supply

Monitoring is an important part of the planning process because it allows us to see how effective the Local Plan policies are at achieving their objectives and to identify where any changes need to be made. The targets we measure the policies against are contained in the Monitoring Framework in Appendix D of the Local Plan. Each year we publish an authority’s monitoring report which sets out the results of the monitoring for the previous year. Alongside this, we also publish a housing delivery report that gives further information on the housing being delivered in the borough. You can find the latest reports below.

The National Planning Policy Framework states that local planning authorities should ‘identify and update annually a supply of specific deliverable sites sufficient to provide five years worth of housing against their housing requirements’ (the ‘five-year supply’). You can find out latest five-year supply methodology and calculation below.
