Draft Thanet Local Plan - 2031 - Pre-Submission Publication, Regulation 19

Monitoring and Review

45 The Council is committed to monitoring the implementation of the Local Plan and to undertaking what actions it can to support delivery of the strategic objectives of the Plan, and the individual development proposals.

46 Development monitoring takes place on a rolling annual basis through the housing and commercial information audits, and the preparation of the Annual Monitoring Report.

47 It is the Council’s intention to monitor a focussed set of key indicators, which will give a clear indication of how successful the Local Plan Strategy is. These indicators will relate to key work areas; for example:

  • Delivery of key housing and employment sites
  • Delivery of key elements of the Infrastructure Delivery Plan
  • Key environmental indicators, such as national and international wildlife sites; quality of development in conservation areas; maintenance of variety of beaches/seafronts
  • Effectiveness of the mitigation scheme (Strategic Access Management and Monitoring strategy) for the Special Protection Area.
