Appendix 02 - Monitoring framework

Monitoring is an essential and necessary part of the planning system in order to check that strategic and local policies are having the desired effect. Monitoring relates both to contextual indicators and also to specific planning outcomes. This is part of the plan-making process.

A Sustainability Appraisal, incorporating Strategic Environmental Assessment, has been conducted as part of the production of the Plan. A requirement of Sustainability Appraisal is to monitor the likely significant effects of the Plan. A monitoring framework and indicators has been developed as work on the Sustainability Appraisal has progressed throughout the production of the Plan. Further details around monitoring related to Sustainability Appraisal objectives are contained in the Sustainability Appraisal Report.

The Council reports on monitoring and delivery in its Annual Monitoring Report. In some instances, it may be appropriate to alter the indicators being reported, either due to a change in information available or to reflect specific issues that emerge.

All indicators will be annually reviewed unless otherwise specified. The targets and indicators will be monitored against the aims, objectives and policies of the Plan.
