Local Plan monitoring

Authority Monitoring Report (AMR)

Section 113 of the Localism Act 2011 requires the Local Planning Authority (LPA) to produce an >Authority Monitoring Report (may previously have been called the Annual Monitoring Report). It is a statutory duty for the LPA to monitor its own performance against the requirements adopted through the Coventry Local Plan 2011-2031 (“Local Plan”). Although LPAs still have discretion as to which targets and indicators to include in the AMR, as long as they are consistent with the relevant UK legislation, and conform to Regulation 34 of the Town and Country Planning (Local Development) (England) Regulations 2012 which set out the minimum requirements for the contents of the report. In short, this includes reporting on the implementation of the Local Development Scheme (LDS), performance against housing delivery targets as set out in the Local Plan, neighbourhood planning, Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) and Duty to Cooperate (DtC).

AMRs are published annually. View all Authority Monitoring Reports

Brownfield Land Register

The Town and Country Planning (Brownfield Land Register) Regulations 2017 and the Town and Country Planning (Permission in Principle) Order 2017 require local authorities to prepare and maintain registers of brownfield land that is suitable for residential development. The regulations set a process for identifying suitable sites, including the requirements for keeping a register and the criteria for assessing sites.

Should you wish to discuss any of the sites on the register, or the register in general, please contact the Planning Policy Team.
