Authority Monitoring Report (AMR)

The Authority Monitoring Report (AMR) forms part of the Local Plan.

The requirement for a local authority to produce an Authority Monitoring Report is set out in Section 113 of the Localism Act 2011.

The Act requires every authority to produce a series of reports containing information on the implementation of the Local Development Scheme, the progress and effectiveness of the Local Plan, and the extent to which the planning policies set out in the Local Plan documents are being achieved.

The AMR is made up of a series of downloadable documents which will be updated at least annually as and when information becomes available.
