The monitoring reports for the Local Plan are a range of documents that will be published on an annual basis, and others that will be monitored on a periodic basis over several years. This replaces the historic time series of the Annual Monitoring Reports, which monitored the policies set out in the context of the Core Strategy adopted in 2011.
