Development Management DPD - Revised Proposed Submission
Ended on the 16 May 2014
Appendix 1: Monitoring Framework
A1 Monitoring and review are key aspects of the development plan system with its emphasis on delivery of sustainable development and sustainable communities.
A2 The Southend Development Management DPD reflects the spatial vision and objectives of the Core Strategy DPD and includes more detailed local policies for the management of development. It is therefore a key element in achieving the vision and objectives of the Core Strategy DPD and contributes to achieving the aims of the Southend’s Community Strategy, ‘Southend Together’.
A3 The Development Management DPD will be delivered through the Council’s decisions on planning applications. The Council will use the policies in this document, alongside those in the Core Strategy DPD and other relevant Local Development Framework documents, when it determines applications for planning permission in the Borough. Account will also be taken of the Council’s other planning documents such as planning briefs and frameworks and conservation area statements, appraisals and management plans, when assessing planning applications. Monitoring of the policies of these documents will evaluate progress being made towards delivering the spatial vision and objectives through the implementation of policies. The results of such monitoring will provide the basis for a review to be undertaken.
A4 The Council annually produce the Southend Annual Monitoring Report (SAMR), which contains an assessment of Local Development Document preparation against milestones set out in the Local Development Scheme (LDS), and the extent to which policies set out in Local Development Documents are being achieved and targets being met. The SAMR will be the main mechanism for assessing the LDF's performance and effect. As well as linking with spatial objectives and policies, indicators in the SAMR will also link to sustainability appraisal objectives in order to identify the significant effects of policy implementation.
A5 In addition to those core and local indicators already set out in the SAMR, the following indicators will be subject to annual review to ensure effective monitoring. Indicators that are referenced CP are already included in the Core Strategy monitoring framework.
