Authority Monitoring Report

The London Borough of Bexley produces an Authority Monitoring Report (AMR) to assess the effectiveness of its planning policies.

The AMR also helps central government and the Mayor of London assess how effectively Bexley's policies support national and regional planning policies.

The Council produces its AMR in accordance with central government guidance that Local Planning Authorities should regularly monitor and review their development plans. The AMR also considers progress on preparation of the Local Development Framework.

Authority Monitoring Report 2014/15

In December 2015, the Council approved its Authority Monitoring Report for the year 1 April 2014 to 31 March 2015.

A copy of the 2014/15 AMR and previous AMRs can be found below.

Five year housing land supply assessment

The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) requires each Local Planning Authority to review annually the five-year supply of housing in its area, as part of the AMR process. The Council has considered sites identified within the Greater London Authority's (GLA) Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment 2013 (SHLAA), as updated, and sites that have planning permission or are under construction. The Council considers that it is on course to exceed its London Plan target over the next five years, because 3,401 units are likely to be provided via specific sites, compared with the London Plan target of 2,230 units from conventional housing supply. 

Further details regarding Bexley's future housing supply, including the five year housing land supply assessment, can be found in the attachments below.
