Authority Monitoring Reports
The Authority Monitoring Report (AMR) assess the performance of planning policies and considers the progress of emerging policy documents.
AMRs are currently produced on a former district area basis as each geographical area has a different set of planning policies within its Local Plan. There are also AMRs for Somerset that were produced to monitor the performance of Minerals and Waste Plan policies.
Earlier reports are available on request.

Local Aggregate Assessment
Evaluates the potential supply and demand of aggregates in the county. The National Planning Policy Framework requires Minerals Planning Authorities to plan for a steady and adequate supply of aggregates. This is achieved by operating an Aggregate Working Party (AWP) which provides input to each Mineral Planning Authority’s Local Aggregate Assessment (LAA). All of the latest information and resources for the SW AWP are held on Cornwall Council’s website
