Adopted Local Plan
Monitoring the plan's effectiveness
We monitor 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
