Planning delivery and monitoring

The council will monitor the delivery of planning proposals that are promoted in the LDP, and will seek to facilitate implementation of development by means of relevant assessments, including financial viability appraisals.

This process is vital to ensure the Council's objectives for placemaking are being met and that proposals are capable of moving towards implementation stage in the manner envisaged. This page sets out the work undertaken, and the information that is available, in respect of the monitoring and assessment of development schemes.

Annual Monitoring Report

The Annual Monitoring Report (AMR) on the Swansea LDP is submitted to the Welsh Government each year as a statutory part of the development plan process. It is an important means of monitoring the implementation and effectiveness of the LDP and ultimately determines whether any revisions to the Plan are necessary.

It assesses the extent to which the LDP strategy and its key objectives are being achieved, and monitors whether the various policies and proposals set out in the Plan are proving successful in terms of the developments coming forward.

Development Viability Model (DVM)

The Council has worked in partnership with other Councils across the region, alongside Town Planning and Development consultants Burrows-Hutchinson Ltd, to establish the Development Viability Model (DVM) assessment tool. The DVM has been created as a comprehensive, user-friendly model that can be used by site promoters and decision makers for the purpose of assessing the financial viability of a development proposal.
