Monitoring and Implementation

Montoring and Implementation

View Comments (1) 8.1 Monitoring is an important part of evidence based policy making in order to assess whether the Plan's policies are achieving their objective and the Plan's strategy is being delivered.

No Comments 8.2 Local planning authorities are required to develop a monitoring framework to enable the collation of valuable information on the performance of a Plan's policies. The framework set out below comprises a series of indicators, targets and triggers for further action in relation to each theme and its objectives. It will form the basis for assessing the effectiveness of key policies. It also indicates the linkages between the plan themes, objectives and policies. This will provide a basis for the annual monitoring report (AMR).

View Comments (1) 8.3 The indicators have been developed in accordance with Welsh Government guidance on monitoring and where possible are based on indicators referred to in the "Local Development Plan Manual" as well as other indicators considered to be useful to assess the effectiveness of policies.

No Comments 8.4 The Councils have attempted to avoid risks to the delivery of the Plan by adopting a proactive approach to removing constraints and a thorough assessment process. Application of the Candidate Sites Assessment Methodology has ensured as far as it is possible to do so that the sites can be developed and that any constraints to their development can be addressed. Topic Paper 1 published alongside the Deposit Plan records the assessment process and identifies any known factors that need to be considered on a site by site basis. Should any issues arise with the deliverability of allocated sites this will be picked up through thresholds in the monitoring and addressed accordingly through the Annual Monitoring Report (AMR).

View Comments (1) 8.5 The Sustainability Appraisal/Strategic Environmental Assessment (SA/ SEA) Scoping Report identifies the indicators that will be used to monitor progress on sustainability issues and more specifically sustainable development. These are set out in a separate framework which will be used as a tool for monitoring sustainable development in the plan area. Once the Plan is adopted these indicators will also be monitored.

No Comments 8.6 The information gathered through the monitoring framework and the SA/SEA monitoring framework will be reported in the annual monitoring report (AMR). Local planning authorities are required to produce AMR's following the adoption of LDPs in order to review the plan's progress and to assess the effectiveness of its policies and proposals. The AMR will identify actions that need to be taken to resolve any issues raised through the monitoring process. This could include amendments to policies in order to improve their effectiveness, and in more extreme cases could result in a review of part or of the whole plan. The AMR will report information covering the preceding financial year and will be submitted to the Welsh Government by 31 October each year and will be available to view on each Council's website.

No Comments 8.7 Irrespective of the AMR's findings, the Council is required to carry out a review of the whole plan every 4 years.

View Comments (2) 8.8 In accordance with Welsh Government guidance, the Council will seek to integrate its approach to monitoring the LDP with other Council strategies and plans.
