Wakefield Council produces an Annual Monitoring Report of its Local Plan (also known as Local Development Framework) which assesses:
- Progress in preparing documents compared with the milestones set out in the approved Local Development Scheme, and what changes to the scheme may be needed
- The extent to which policies and related targets are achieving their intended purposes and where policies may need to be reviewed.
The reports are published in December each year and report on the previous financial year. The reports include a range of indicators, which together will show whether Local Plan policies are working as intended.
