Monitoring

The Planning etc. (Scotland) Act 2006 and associated changes to the development plan system give greater emphasis to the importance of monitoring.

Monitoring is a fundamental and statutory part of the plan-making process, and as such monitoring arrangements have been integral to the preparation of the approved structure plan.

The SDPA must ensure the structure plan is an effective document that delivers on the vision, aims and objectives set out within it, and remains up-to-date and relevant. In order to do this it is necessary to provide a baseline to determine where we are currently and measure progress over time.

Baseline Monitoring Report was approved by the SDPA on 26 March 2010.

A set of indicators are presented to establish a baseline by which to monitor progress. These indicators are taken from the monitoring arrangements identified in the structure plan, or have been developed, in order to establish progress to meeting the targets set within the plan.

The establishment of a robust monitoring regime, alongside an Action Programme, will not only ensure the structure plan remains action-orientated and achieves results, but will be a significant resource in the preparation of the strategic development plan. As future monitoring reports are produced they will be available from this page.

Monitoring reports have been prepared for the 2001 structure plan and these can be found on the NEST website.
