Other monitoring and data

Local Development Scheme monitoring

Progress against the Local Development Scheme Authority Monitoring report

The Local Development Scheme (LDS), as required by The Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 (as amended by the Planning Act 2008 and Localism Act 2011), is produced to inform the community and other partners of the development plan documents that are being prepared for the area and the envisaged timescales for their preparation.

It is also produced to establish the council’s priorities for the preparation of the development plan documents and their associated work programmes, including in relation to budgeting and resources. Part 8 of the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012 contains the provision that an AMR must include details of each document referred to in the LDS, and the timetable and stage that each document has reached in its preparation.

These details can be found within the Progress against the Local Development Scheme AMR.

Duty-to-Cooperate monitoring

Duty-to-Cooperate Authority Monitoring report 

National Planning Practice Guidance (PPG) states that: ‘Strategic policy-making authorities are required to cooperate with each other, and other bodies, when preparing, or supporting the preparation of policies which address strategic matters’. Once the Examination stage has been reached, local planning authorities (LPAs) must provide robust evidence of the efforts they have made to co-operate on strategic cross boundary matters in order to pass both a ‘legal’ and ‘soundness’ test. The Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012 (as amended) (para. 34 (6)) require that AMRs give details of the actions the LPA has taken under the duty to co-operate. These details can be found within the duty to co-operate AMR.

Minerals and waste monitoring

Local Aggregate Assessment (LAA)

The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) requires minerals planning authorities to produce an annual LAA, which summarises the current and predicted situation in respect of all aspects of aggregates supply. The data used to prepare the LAA predominantly comes from sales data and other relevant local information. The report that summarises the position in 2019 for aggregates across central and eastern Berkshire is available below.
