Monitoring

Each year we carry out monitoring to evaluate the housing, employment and retail sectors in Ashfield. This information feeds into the Local Plan. 

Annual monitoring report

The annual monitoring report aims to establish what is happening now and what may happen in the future to inform the Local Plan and corporate objectives. Through comparing trends against existing policies we can check whether changes are needed. 

The report includes information on and plans toward: 

  • health and happiness
  • homes and housing
  • economic growth and place
  • clean and green environment
  • safe and strong communities
  • innovation and improvements.

Housing land monitoring

The housing land monitoring report shows the availability of housing land in Ashfield and the rate at which housing developments are completed. It also shows the availability of affordable housing and an overview of development across the last 30 years.

Employment land monitoring

The employment land monitoring report shows the availability of land and floorspace for employment purposes in the district. Floorspace may mean offices, industrial, warehousing or spaces used for a combination of these activities.

Retail floorspace survey

The Retail Floorspace Survey monitors the district's retail climate and provides information relating to existing retail units, such as their current use and state of occupancy. This will allow us to monitor any changes in use of retail premises across the district.

The Retail Floorspace Survey also forms an important strategic document which contributes to the wider Local Plan evidence base.
