We have produced a number of documents which are not part of the local plan but which support, explain and monitor the local plan and how it was prepared. These supporting documents are:
Local development scheme (LDS): this explains what planning policy documents the council intends to produce and the timescale for their preparation. The LDS includes key milestones that inform you about opportunities to get involved with the plan making process and to let you know the likely dates for this involvement.
Statement of community involvement (SCI): this sets out how we will consult with you on proposed planning policy document and planning applications.
Authority monitoring report (formerly annual monitoring report) (AMR): reviews the progress of the implementation of the Local Plan:
- Authority Monitoring Report 2017-2018 and 2018-2019 (updated August 2019)
- Authority Monitoring Report 2015-2016 and 2016-2017
