42. Implementation, Monitoring and Review

The Policies, Specific Site Allocations and Areas of Search included in the Plan will mainly be implemented through the Development Management function of Norfolk County Council. However, some of the policies will be implemented through on-going dialogue with the Local Planning Authorities within Norfolk, which takes place through established work practices.

Implementation of the Minerals and Waste Local Plan will be monitored and captured in the Annual Monitoring Reports or Local Aggregate Assessment as appropriate. If the monitoring identifies any significant divergence from a trend or target required, some intervention by Norfolk County Council may be required. Proposed targets and trigger points for further consideration / action will be detailed in the Preferred Options Consultation document, the table below just contains two example indicators. Monitoring will seek to establish the reason (s) for the divergence from the target, and as a consequence, an intervention may be required. Intervention could include a review of the evidence base, a specific policy or the Plan as a whole and will be reported in the Annual Monitoring Report.

The format for the table of indicators for the implementation, monitoring and review of the Minerals and Waste Local Plan is shown below, containing two examples of indicators. The full table will contain indicators relevant to both minerals and waste developments.
