Reviewing the Local Plan

1.15 The Local Plan will be reviewed on a regular basis to ensure that it remains relevant and appropriate. In particular, the plan will be subject to regular annual monitoring to ensure that the policies and proposals are achieving their objectives. Where monitoring suggests that policies are proving to be ineffective or are having unintended effects, there may be a need for a partial or total review of the plan. As a general rule of thumb the plan is likely to be reviewed every five years.
