The Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 requires local planning authorities to produce monitoring reports on at least a yearly basis. The report should:

  • monitor the progress of the local development documents set out in the Local Development Scheme
  • monitor the effectiveness of the policies set out in the local development documents

The Annual Monitoring Report covers the period from 1 April one year to 31 March the following year.

These reports are supplemented by the Hampshire Minerals and Waste Development Framework Annual Monitoring Report which sets out minerals and waste data for the Hampshire area (including the whole of the New Forest National Park) over the same periods.
