Authority monitoring reports

Authority monitoring reports (AMRs) are prepared annually to monitor development in the borough in the previous year. 

They set out progress against a range of measures; such as the number of new dwellings built, the amount of new commercial floorspace completed, and the borough's level of employment.

AMRs also set out plans and projections for the future, including the council's up to date housing land supply.
