Annual monitoring reports (AMRs)
Local planning authorities must publish information at least annually that shows progress with local plan and neighbourhood plan preparation, report any activity relating to the duty to cooperate, any information collected which relates to indicators in the plan, and any policies which are not being implemented.
Regulation 34 of the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012 sets out what information the reports must contain.
Before 2011, local planning authorities had a statutory duty to prepare an annual monitoring report and to submit it to the Secretary of State by the end of each calendar year. The 2020-2021 report also contains monitoring information which relates to the previous decade.
