Monitoring of the Purbeck District Local Plan

The council monitors the implementation and effectiveness of its adopted planning policies on an annual basis.

Current monitoring reports

A number of topic based reports are prepared including the Five Year Housing Land Supply, Local Plan progress and Retail Provision which monitor how it is doing in meeting the targets set out in the Purbeck Local Plan Part 1: Planning Purbeck's Future

The purpose of monitoring is to assess whether:

  • policies are achieving their objectives, in particular, whether they are delivering sustainable development

  • policies have had unintended consequences

  • the assumptions and objectives behind policies are still relevant

  • the targets are being achieved
