Annual Monitoring Reports regarding Minerals and Waste Planning Policy

The Annual Monitoring Reports describe the progress that has been made with preparing the Minerals and Waste Development Plan Documents for Cumbria against the timetable and milestones that are set out in the Minerals and Waste Development Scheme. They also consider the extent to which current development plan policies remain relevant.

Historically, these were prepared at the end of each calendar year, but covered the preceding financial year (1 April to 31 March). In 2014, it was decided that Annual Monitoring Reports would be prepared by calendar year, as much of the evidence by which performance is assessed, becomes available at year end. In 2015 it was decided to rename the reports as Authority Monitoring Reports.

The most recent Authority Monitoring Report covers the period 1 January to 31 December 2019 and can be found below alongside previous reports:
