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 Housing Delivery Test measures the number of new homes built in East Cambridgeshire against the number of new homes required. In response to the Housing Delivery Test 2019 measurement, the Council produced an Action Plan which explains how the supply of new homes in the district will be increased. The Action Plan will be updated in due course to reflect the recent Housing Delivery Test 2020 measurement. 

The Five Year Housing Land Supply Report (December 2020) calculates the amount of land available for housing development within the next five years. Following government's publication of the Housing Delivery Test 2020 measurement, the Council has prepared an addendum to ensure its Five Year Housing Land Supply calculation accurately reflects the consequences of the latest Housing Delivery Test measurement.

The Five Year Housing Land Supply Report, Addendum Report and Housing Delivery Test Action Plan are available to download using the links in the table below.
