Monitoring reports

Information about how planning policies are monitored, what the annual monitoring report is, monitoring employment land, house building and housing land monitoring, housing land position statement and retail development monitoring.

How are planning policies monitored?

There are four main documents that we use to monitor planning policies and development in the East Riding.

  • The Annual Monitoring Report (AMR) monitors a wide range of policy and development information including housing, business and retail development
  • The Employment Land Monitoring Report (ELMR) which monitors the amount of land identified for future economic development
  • The Housing Land Supply Position Statement (HLSPS), which replaced the Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) monitors a range of housing land information including the position with the 5-year supply of housing land.
  • The Infrastructure Funding Statement (IFS) reports on contributions agreed and received from developers as a result of granting planning permission. The Statement also provides details on the monies spent on infrastructure funded through developer contributions.

In addition, the council prepares a Brownfield Register of brownfield sites (also known as 'previously developed land') that are suitable for housing.

What is the Annual Monitoring Report?

Annual Monitoring Reports (AMR) provide an update on progress with the East Riding Local Plan and considers how well planning policies are being implemented. This includes collecting and analysing a wide range of data such as house completions, amount of available land for employment uses and installed renewable energy capacity.

How is employment land monitored?

An annual report is published to show the availability of allocated employment land throughout East Riding of Yorkshire as of the 1 April each year. The report includes details of which allocated site have been developed along with details of planning applications. The report below provides information on the provision of employment land as of 1 April 2022.

Sites allocated for employment use are set out in the East Riding Local Plan Allocations Document and shown on the Local Plan Policies Map.

Previous years

The report below provides information on the provision of employment land throughout East Riding of Yorkshire as of 1 April 2021. Earlier reports since 2004 are available on request from the Forward Planning team.

How is house building and housing land monitored?

House building and housing land is currently monitored through the Housing Land Supply Position Statement (HLSPS). A summary of housing indicators is also provided in the Annual Monitoring Report. Both of these documents provide details on the number of dwellings built each year in the East Riding.

Does the council have a 5-year supply of deliverable housing sites?

Yes. The council is able to demonstrate a supply of deliverable sites well in excess of 5 years for the period 2023/24 to 2027/28.

As the Local Plan Strategy Document is more than 5 years old, the requirement for the supply calculation is based on the local housing need figure determined through the Government's standard method outlined in national policy (4,426 dwellings for the 5-year period).

The council has prepared Housing Land Supply Position Statement (HLSPS) for the period 2023/24 to 2027/28. This identifies many sites that will be able to deliver new homes over the next five years and demonstrates a deliverable supply equivalent to 9.3 years or 7.1 years when measured against the proposed Local Plan Update requirement of 1,100 dwellings per annum.

What is the Brownfield Register?

A Brownfield Register is a schedule of brownfield sites (also known as 'previously developed land') that are suitable for housing. To be considered for inclusion on the register, sites must meet the following criteria:

  • Available - sites should be deliverable or developable. Deliverable sites are those that offer a suitable location for housing now and offer a realistic prospect of being under construction in the next five years. Developable sites are those sites likely to come forward later on (e.g. between six to ten years).
  • Capable of supporting five or more dwellings or more than 0.25 hectares in size.
  • Capable of development - sites should be free from constraints or, where there are constraints, these can be suitably mitigated.

The register includes sites with and without planning permission and is largely informed by the HLSPS (see above). There are two parts to the register. Part 1 comprises those sites that meet the criteria listed above. Part 2 includes sites where the council has granted 'permission in principle' for housing development (the permission for sites previously granted approval have now lapsed). The register is presented in two different formats below and is accompanied by a series of maps identifying their extents and locations. An ESRI 'shapefile' is available for viewing the sites in GIS programmes (e.g. ESRI ArcMap).

How are developer contributions monitored?

Contributions from developers as part of approved developments are monitored and reported on through an Infrastructure Funding Statement (IFS). An IFS sets out how developer contributions have been and will be used to provide infrastructure within the East Riding.

Latest IFS reports

The latest IFS for the period 1 April 2022 to 31 March 2023 is available below:

The Government requires all local planning authorities to publish their developer contributions data on a regular basis and in an agreed format. The council publishes its developer contributions data annually in three CSV files which are provided under the Open Government Licence (external website).
