Part 1 - Initial Draft (February 2015)
12 MONITORING & IMPLEMENTATION
12.1 The Local Plan period covers a twenty 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 to respond to changing circumstances. The delivery of the 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. For each policy, the Plan identifies relevant targets, indicators, and triggers for a review of the policy.
