(1) 10 MONITORING AND IMPLEMENTATION

10.1 The Local Plan period covers a 16 year period, during which time it is likely that significant changes could occur which will affect the delivery of the Plan's Strategy. It may be, for example, that the rate of delivery of housing or employment land does not take place as anticipated, new previously developed sites may become available as a result of future economic changes, or new infrastructure may be required. Other changes may also require a review of the Local Plan, such as the emergence of new evidence. The Local Plan is intended to set out a clear path to delivery, but also to provide flexibility in order to respond to continuously changing circumstances.

10.2 The delivery of this Local Plan will be monitored on a continuing basis, and formally published through the Authority's Monitoring Report, which will propose any refinements or reviews at any stage during the Plan period.

10.3 For each policy, the Plan identifies relevant targets, indicators, and triggers for a review of the policy. This means that the effectiveness of each policy and implementation measure can be monitoring.

10.4 The table below sets out the indicators, targets and review triggers for each policy within the Local Plan. The delivery and monitoring mechanisms are also identified.
