Annual Monitoring Report

The Council assesses the performance of policies of the Local Plan to ensure they remain effective and relevant by monitoring key indicators relating to housing, employment and other development. Findings are published in the Annual Monitoring Report (AMR). The current AMR which covers the monitoring period 01 April 2018 to 31 March 2019, and reports from previous years, are available to view and download using the links below.

Housing Land Supply Report and Housing Delivery Test

National planning policy requires the Council to maintain a supply of land suitable and available for housing development.  

The Five Year Housing Land Supply Report (December 2020) calculates the amount of land available for housing development within the next five years and can be downloaded using the link in the table below.

In 2019, National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) introduced a requirement of Housing Delivery Test (HDT).  This measures net additional dwellings provided in East Cambridgeshire area against the homes required, using national statistics and local authority data.  East Cambridgeshire District Council has produced its first HDT report and this can be downloaded using link below.
