The monitoring of planning policies and assessing whether strategic planning targets are being met is an essential part of the work that Dudley Council’s Strategic Planning and Historic Environment Team do: it is the means by which Dudley Council can assess how well the planning policies of the Development Plan for the Borough are performing. It also provides essential information for any review or update of planning policies, as it shows whether or not they are effective in achieving the targets stated in the monitoring indicators.
A main part of the AMR is the monitoring of the policies contained within the Black Country Core Strategy (BCCS) (adopted 2011),. As the BCCS is a Black Country wide planning policy document, in most cases the monitoring indicators relate to Black Country-wide targets. Each of the four authorities therefore produces an AMR which incorporates the indicators from the BCCS and reflects the authority’s own situation.
Dudley Council's latest AMR is for 2016/17 and can be viewed by clicking on the PDF file below. Also attached to this webpage are relevant, previous AMRs.
